'In Whose Interest? The Practical Horrible Realities
of Power' is a fast moving and powerful 26-minute
documentary in response to 9/11. Filmmaker David
Kaplowitz leads us on an eyeopening journey,
questioning the effects of US foreign policy over the
past 50 years. Revealing a pattern of intervention,
the film focuses on Guatemala, Vietnam, East Timor, El
Salvador, and Palestine/ Israel. Archive footage,
photographs and media tidbits are dynamically
interwoven with personal eye-witness accounts,
commentary from academics (such as Noam Chomsky),
religious leaders and politicians. 'In Whose Interest'
is informative and disturbingly honest, yet upbeat,
with twists of irony and humor.
"Hard hitting, heart-rending, informative"
—Mel Gurtov, Professor of Political Science
&International Studies, Portland State University
"This is a film I will remember 20 years from now."
"This film changed the way I look at America."
—Students at Washington High School, San Francisco
