A New 9/11 Investigation - Coming to a Theater Near You?


A New 9/11 Investigation - Coming to a Theater Near You?
Hollywood Stars Seek to Make Feature Film Focused on WTC Demolitions

"A Violation of Trust" (formerly titled "Confession of a 9/11 Conspirator") is a feature film project that is willing to do what the world's governments and legal bodies are unwilling to do – open a real investigation of 9/11 for the entire world to see. It dramatizes the first day of "The President's New Investigation of 9/11", with actors performing from a tightly-written, FACTUALLY-ACCURATE script that pits the 9/11 Commission Report and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Reports against the work of 9/11 researcher Dr. David Ray Griffin and the scientific research highlighted by leading 9/11 truth organizations, including Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

The filming of "A Violation of Trust" will be performed on a single set, depicting the investigation's public hearing room. The single-set approach provides the most intense platform for the actors and the script to involve the audience. The film's compelling drama, forceful images and real-time video clips will be woven into its often contentious question-and-answer dialogue to create opportunities for conflicting views that will be argued both passionately and in a scientific and logical manner.


The list of actors that have signed on to this film includes:

1. heck, we can do better than that

We can "create opportunities for conflicting views that will be argued both passionately and in a scientific and logical manner" right here. In fact, we've been doing it for years. (I'm not saying that all the arguments have been scientific and logical, but there is no denying the opportunities.) We haven't produced a DVD, but then again, we haven't solicited contributions of $25 or more to get a DVD, either.

Oh well. Whatever.

10. The script might have been better just using posts from the DU2 S11 forum.

There were many discussions that were more informative and well researched than the script excerpt they included at the linked article. Although I did find their script to be the best part - perhaps they are currently rewriting it to make it sound remotely believable. This was my favorite exchange:

DR. SLOAN: By free-fall do you mean as fast as if you dropped a bowling ball from the roof and it fell down to the ground without any resistance?

MR. GAGE: It's basic physics - the same laws of physics Isaac Newton discovered over 300 years ago.

DR. SLOAN: So if NIST's fire theory violates these laws then it must be wrong?

MR. GAGE: Not even George W. Bush could have written a signing statement that can invalidate the laws of physics.

11. I was, ummm, nonplussed when I saw the script excerpt

It somehow makes me think of people trying to hone their chess skills by playing themselves, and making sure that White always gets the best moves. I can't think of a way actually to politicize chess moves, and I'd be happy for a better analogy to the awkward dumbing down on display here.

12. Nah, nothing wrong with the script

MRS. SAWYER: Excuse me Mr. Chairman, but we have a big problem with Dr. Singer’s testimony.

CHAIRMAN EISNER: Which part of it?

MRS. SAWYER: All of it.

CHAIRMAN EISNER: What do your experts say?

MRS. SAWYER: Let me introduce Mr. Richard Gage, AIA, a member of the American Institute of Architects and founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

CHAIRMAN EISNER: Mr. Gage, what sparked your interest in 9/11?

MR. GAGE: In 2006, I caught an interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin that changed my life. He was describing the oral histories from dozens of New York City firefighters that had recently been released due to a court order.

CHAIRMAN EISNER: Then what happened?

MR. GAGE: I started watching videos on the Internet of the buildings collapsing, looking for signs of explosives. You can actually see them going off, all around the buildings, just like the firefighters said.

I mean, if that sort of writing isn't Academy Award-winning material, I don't know what is!

13. Yes, donate $25 for absolutely nothing

Oh, I take that back, Gage could probably use the money...

2. Bullshit

This is a completely made up story.
Check www.imdb.com
It is a database for every production ever made, currently being made, and upcoming productions.
The title gets no hits and neither do any of the actors.
So, AE911Truth once again makes a mockery of the word "truth".

4. "every production"?

I'm sorry, but I don't see how one could use imdb.com to prove that a movie isn't being made, especially if it isn't produced by an established studio.

Granted, if I were considering a donation, I might want to kick the tires first.

3. According to the website... No, it is not coming to any theaters

Assuming what is there is all true, they hope it will come to TV.

"A Violation Of Trust begins filming in the new year, so it will be available for its Worldwide TV Premiere on the night of 9/11/12 – potentially reaching hundreds of millions of people all on the same night!!!"

They have an ambitious schedule as well, begin filming this year... sometime, they don't say when and be done to show it at Cannes in May:

"We are presently negotiating a distribution contract as I write this. Together with the distributor, we plan to attend and begin selling "Violation" to TV networks across our world at the May 16th CANNES Marche du Film."

It will be interesting to see if they can deliver what they are promising there, lots of names... Some pretty big.

5. oh, I just saw those dates

Ah, on the ae911truth page (not to be confused with aa911truth):

The production schedule for “A Violation of Trust” is as follows:

Pre-Production: NOW

Principal Photography: 10 days beginning March 22, 2012

Post-Production: 6 weeks

Cannes “Marche du Film” Premiere: May 16, 2012

Release Date: September 11, 2012


FWIW. The production seems to be on a modest scale, so if the talent appears, it may be doable.

6. The only one that might be a problem is Woody

He is still very active and doing a lot of work. There are other famous names but you don't see them in much these days.

7. Not one of the actors listed has their name attached.

If they were going into production, it would be listed on IMDB.
Here's Woody...http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000437/
And yes, IMDB also lists movies in Pre-Production.
This movie ain't on it cuz it's wishful thinking.
Saying those actors have signed on is BULLSHIT.

ETA: Not to mention, this news would not only be reported in the trades, but with a serious cast like they have listed, would make headlines everywhere. Remember when Stone made JFK? It didn't just appear out of nowhere...

8. It is really not a very serious cast

You also have to read whats said:

"Many of our fellow actors and artists have agreed to perform in the film"

There is no claim they have "signed", so it leaves them plenty of wiggle room when it ends up being another youtube video.

9. Well, I've been working here in Hollywood for 25 years

and I've had smoke blown up my ass by the best!
Trust me, if "Many of our fellow actors and artists have agreed to perform in the film" were true, we all would know about it. Hell, just the rightwing sites like DRUDGE would be all over it.
It's bullshit, from a bullshit organization that is becoming less relevant every day....if they ever were relevant, that is.

Now, if they use some of their interviews that some of these actors have given in a youtube video...that's another story.
