Coming Soon - A new documentary from the Academy Award winning producers of THE PANAMA DECEPTION.
Since 9/11 we've been following closely the dramatic changes in how our government operates. We’re alarmed at the blatant disregard for constitutional rights, and the rampant growth in militarism and expansion of state power. We need to bring this to public attention and find ways to counter it.
In the years following the attacks of 9/11, the image of the United States as a bastion of freedom for the rights of the individual has been altered dramatically and, some fear, permanently. The country is now effectively in a state of endless warfare. Long-standing principles of human rights and civil liberties enshrined in the U.S. Constitution are routinely ignored and discarded.
Much of what the government does is conducted in secret, hidden from public view. Congress has enacted legislation allowing federal agents to demand access to information and records from anyone without warrants or probable cause, and to secretly break into homes and offices to obtain information. Government surveillance of Americans’ phone conversations and emails is now widespread, without warrants or judicial oversight. It is now considered acceptable to imprison suspects indefinitely without charge or due process, or to simply assassinate them. The President publicly renounces the use of torture, yet it secretly continues out of view. The White House and the Justice Department tolerate and conceal war crimes committed by political elites and those following their orders. America’s founders would shudder in disbelief at the contempt for constitutional rights that has now become the norm. This film will raise public awareness, and help grow a mass movement to reverse the movement toward an authoritarian state.

At the Empowerment Project we have been making films that expose corruption and abuse of government power for more than 30 years, and we’ve seen how using media for activism can have a powerful effect to create change and transformation in our world. Among our many awards is the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature in 1992 for The Panama Deception. These films have been widely distributed to theaters, television, educational and retail markets both in the US and abroad. Our earlier films made history. With your help we can leverage this past success to ensure that this message gets out to a wide audience. The Empowerment Project is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, so donations are eligible for income tax deduction.
