DVD "Orwell Rolls In His Grave" -the media will never report these truths

Pappas has creatively distilled the grave threat of the mass corporate media into a film that is a riveting, extraordinary Documentary, "Orwell Rolls In His Grave" A Film by Robert Kane Pappas (DVD) Tuesday, May 25, 2004, BuzzFlash is the Exclusive Distributor and giving it away for a $30 donation to site.

The political threat posed by a corporate media aligned with a radical right wing White House was directed, financed, produced, edited and narrated by one man: Robert Kane Pappas. Pappas, on a bare bones budget, assembles the "A-team" roster of media critics and then weaves their comments together with music, reflections, documentary footage and titling that keeps you mesmerized with its brilliant insight - as it informs without being didactic and is compelling without being preachy. It is the story about the media that the media will never report.

Michael Moore's new film will no doubt overshadow "Orwell Rolls in his Grave." That's okay with Pappas (Moore appears in the film and Pappas admires him dearly), but it would be nice if this tour de force of a documentary on the mass media was seen by the masses. Right now, it is rolling out with extremely limited movie theater showings.

This is a must see, a wake-up call to America that we have already entered an Orwellian world when history, context, and language are redefined daily by the government, as the media broadcasts the new version of the truth without question. Every news cycle starts with a clean slate for the White House "Ministry of Truth" to write on.

1. I'd love to see this DVD
I'm rereading 1984 (the first time over 30 yrs ago when I was in high school), and it's scaring the wits out of me.
Unfortunately, I'm living in Holland, so I'll have to wait until someone distributes the DVD for Region 2. Somebody tell me all about it.

2. Region removal and copy via 123 software - plus $10 for int'l shipping and
gets you a DVD

I say this as if it is easy - but I only know it can be done - and have not done it!

I suspect the site will do it for you for nothing!
