Sat Nov 3rd – Is Trump for Real?


Saturday, November 3, 2018, 7pm Room FSS-1006
Is Trump for Real?

is trump for real
With the help of Steve Bannon and Cambridge Analytica, Trump has been groomed to appeal to a broad mass of people, at a time when the general public has lost faith in media and politics. Bannon has admitted to close associates that he modelled his campaign on the one crafted for Adolf Hitler, who was a puppet of dark forces, at the very least “like” those who created Trump. Through meticulous investigative journalism, John Hankey explores the reality of said claims, and how the media circus following Trump is but a strategy for dividing a “United” States.

Killing Gaza

max blumethal and dan cohen made documentary killing gaza


In Killing Gaza, journalists Dan Cohen and Max Blumenthal documented Israel’s 2014 war on Gaza.

Yet this film is much more than a documentary about Palestinian resilience and suffering. It is a chilling visual document of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony and evidence from the survivors.

“Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen’s powerful new film, ‘Killing Gaza,’ offers an unflinching and moving portrait of a people largely abandoned by the outside world, struggling to endure.” — Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, best-selling author and activist Chris Hedges.
