This film is a documentary adaptation Naomi Klein's 2007 book, The Shock Doctrine. 

It shows how monopoly finance capitalism used natural disasters, war and terror to crush resistance and establish its dominance.

Based on breakthrough historical research and four years of on-the-ground reporting in disaster zones, The Shock Doctrine vividly shows how disaster capitalism – the rapid-fire corporate re-engineering of societies still reeling from shock – did not begin with September 11, 2001.

This film was first screened six months after the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and two years after the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq have had peace ever since. In fact, the war has been extended to Syria and other countries. It is timely to re-screen this film which dissects the truth and lies behind the 'War on Terror’. It investigates the discrepancies between American and British justification for 'war' and the facts on the ground in Afghanistan and Washington DC. At McCrossin's Mill, 24-28 Salisbury St, Uralla.

The Uralla screening will take place, as usual, on the last Tuesday of the month:

A weekend gathering with a huge 'all-in' finale on Sunday the 21st. Momentum in the Pilliga Push has been growing for months, but it's time to ramp it up. We must push CSG out of NSW before it takes hold. Over the weekend of the 19th - 21st join us in the iconic Pilliga bushland where we will gather to opose Santos' CSG in greater numbers than ever before. Gamilaraay custodians, farmers, nannas, local townsfolk and concerned citizens from near and far. We will all unite. Pilliga Push Camp, Newell Highway, near Coonabarabran.

Over the past 15 years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Everywhere, the same scenario is repeated: billions of bees leave their hives, never to return. No bodies are found in the immediate surroundings, and no visible predators can be located. 

Written in the blood of mineworkers and their families, 'Blood on the Coal' tells the story of Australia’s Queensland coalfields – one of the world’s richest energy resources and for 150 years a bitter industrial battleground. This story of struggle and tragedy features harrowing underground disasters and heroic rescues. The film traces a history of strikes, industrial turmoil as well as the current push by global mining giants to destroy regional communities and replace local mineworkers with a subservient itinerant workforce.

This documentary tells the stories of people whose lives were changed by renewable energy. It shows how renewable energy is revitalising communities and revitalising industries across the U.S.A..
