Documentaries are not the only medium through which people have their worldviews successfully challenged. Some of us are more affected by storytelling. Good fiction, music and lyrics, poetry, and fairy tales can often pierce the depths of the psyche where facts and rational analysis fail.
For this reason, this month we are pleased to air the docudrama Operation Terror, written and produced by filmmaker Art Olivier, a former mayor of Bellflower, CA. This film tells a story, and does it well considering its low budget and that it was written and produced by a first-time filmmaker.
But don’t hold your breath for this film to reach the theaters. Although it is well-produced, each time Olivier’s staff revealed its content, the theaters suddenly lost interest.
For 9/11 Truth purists, the film will ruffle some feathers as it presents a few elements of the false flag theory that many of us feel have been debunked by our most careful 9/11 Truth researchers. Nevertheless, we must remember that this is a very large movement, that we are never going to agree on one theory about how this operation was pulled off–unless, of course, there is a real and unbiased investigation.
But what we can all agree on currently is that (1) we have been royally lied to by our officials about what happened on that infamous day, which changed the world so drastically, and (2) the three World Trade Center (WTC) buildings were destroyed by demolition devices.
In addition, we now have available to us the 9/11 Consensus Panel, made up of disparate 9/11 Truth activists who have found points on which they can all agree. There is no excuse, therefore, for media to set up straw men that they can then knock down to discredit this movement. Send your friends to this site for clarification about points on which most of us can agree!
For the most part, Operation Terror supports the scientific approach followed by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and the forensic studies showing tons of nanothermite in the WTC dust.
Although banned in theaters, the film aired last October in Berkeley, CA, with filmmaker Art Olivier, Richard Gage, AIA, and Ken Jenkins answering questions afterward. The Q and A was very informative and can be seen here. The film can be purchased at operationterror.com.
Festivals: Operation Terror premiered internationally at the Fajr Film Festival in Tehran, Iran. The U.S. domestic premiere was at the Riverside Film Festival in California. Other festivals include the Monaco Charity Film Festival; the International Film Festival for Peace, Inspiration and Equality; Baghdad International Film Festival; and the New Horizon Independent Filmmakers Festival.
Awards: Operation Terror won the Honorable Mention award at the International Film Festival for Peace, Inspiration and Equality, and won the Genre Film: “Thriller” at the International Movie Awards; and Paul Cross was nominated Best Director at the Fajr International Film Festival.
Please join us to view this film with critiquing eyes and ears and for a lively discussion afterward!
