John spent three decades as an Economic Hit Man, business executive, author, and lecturer. He lived and worked in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and North America. Then he made a decision: he would use these experiences to make the planet a better place for his daughter’s generation. Today he teaches about the importance of rising to higher levels of consciousness, to waking up -- in both spiritual and physical realms -- and is a champion for environmental and social causes. He has lectured at universities on four continents, including Harvard, Wharton, and Princeton.
Carol met him over a decade ago, when he was very active with the Dream Change Coalition, sharing indigenous wisdom and insights with Americans, in hopes of changing "the American Dream" and preventing the destruction of indigenous cultures and the rainforests. At that time he was leading workshops on "Shape-Shifting" and taking people on "Shamanic, transformative journeys" to South America. He has led an extraordinary life.
In the second hour, our guest is Jarek Kupsc, the director of The Reflecting Pool one of the first feature 9/11 Truth Films.
"The Reflecting Pool" follows an investigation by a Russian-American journalist and the father of a 9/11 victim into many of the suppressed facts and anomalies surrounding the 9/11 tragedy. Jarek wrote, directed, and plays the journalist, Alex Prokop in the film.
The story revolves around Prokop, a successful journalist, who receives a 9/11 videotape and is assigned to look into the story by his boss, a magazine publisher. He is joined in his investigation by the man who sent him the videotape, Paul Cooper, whose daughter died in the attacks. Together, they uncover suppressed information that never appeared in the official report, newspaper headlines or the evening news. They visit New York and DC, interview a range of investigators, government officials, witnesses. They investigate the inexplicable collapse of WTC Building 7, the implausible airliner "attack" on the Pentagon, the destruction of physical evidence from Ground Zero.
The journalist is plagued by memories of his Communist childhood and tries to pull together a story backed by irrefutable facts that can't be torn and shredded by the gears of the American press. It presents the challenge of casting light upon State secrets that threaten powerful institutions.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, Jarek has been involved in independent film production since 1983. He studied art and history in his native Warsaw, Poland, learned Byzantine Icon painting techniques in Greece, and received his BA in Film Writing/Directing from San Francisco State University. He authored and illustrated "The History of Cinema for Beginners," a comic film history textbook in 1980.
As a writer/director/producer, Jarek completed numerous short films, including the Rosebud Award-winning "Dog." He debuted in 2001 with "Recoil" in the feature film category, following with "Slumberland" in 2005 (Winner of Special Jury Prize, 2006 Gdynia Film Festival, Poland; First Prize, 2007 Oskariada FF, Poland; Best Screenwriter, 2007 Young Film Festival, Poland. "The Reflecting Pool" is his latest project.
(There will be two special preview screening of The Reflecting Pool at the 9/11 Truth Film Festival Monday and Tuesday, September 10th and 11th, 2007, a Benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland.)
We will discuss American Imperialsim, black ops, propaganda, and the difficulties and rewards of speaking out on taboo truths- the shadow side of the American government.
