Noam Chomsky: Rebel Without A Pause

A documentary on Noam Chomsky, as he speaks to an audience in Hamilton, Ontario late last year. 75 min.

Rock star Bono of U2 has called American political activist Noam Chomsky “a rebel without a pause, the Elvis of academia.” At 74, this soft-spoken professor of linguistics remains one of the world’s leading voices of dissent. The controversial author of more than two dozen books about the use and abuse of power, including the bestseller 9-11, he draws capacity crowds to his lecturers wherever he travels. This documentary, which follows Chomsky on a recent visit to Hamilton, Ont., explores his views on such timely issues as terrorism and the war on Iraq, and offers insight into the source of his widespread appeal.

War Spin: The Truth About Jessica challenges the Pentagon's version of a story that boosted American morale during a sticky point in the Iraq War as part of its investigation into allied propaganda.

The Forgotten People

CBC's Fifth Estate on Iraq, the Kurds and the U.S. during the 1980's. 27 min.

As hundreds of thousands of American soldiers bear down upon the regime of Saddam Hussein, it is hard to imagine another era, not so long ago, when the Americans and Iraqis were allies. In those days, they had a mutual enemy: Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran. The Iraqis had long-standing disputes with Iran and the Americans were still smarting over the seizure of American hostages in 1979. Ronald Reagan sent a special envoy to forge an alliance. His name was Donald Rumsfeld. Twenty years ago, each side had something the other needed. The Americans wanted an ally in the Middle East and Iraq needed food, money and military supplies.
