The Ultimate Red Pill Remastered (2019) (Documentaries)
“Lord God, give us the strength that we may retain our liberty for our children and our children’s children, not only for ourselves but also for the other peoples of Europe, for this is a war which we all wage, this time, not for our German people alone, it is a war for all of Europe and with it, in the long run, for all of MANKIND.” – Adolf Hitler, 1942 To Adolf Hitler, evil MUST be opposed, good MUST be upheld. To pretend that the world is other than it is was self-defeating. To lie about it, or try to fool others about it was unthinkable. Once his eyes were opened to the Jews and what their policies were doing to Germany there was no question of keeping his mouth shut and going on about his business. He HAD to speak out against them. He would fight them anywhere, anytime, under any conditions, no matter what the odds. And he would fight them with all his strength of his being. I’m sure if there had been just a thousand men like Hitler in Germany at the time we’d be living in a healthy, progressive world today… But all we got were, The Jews! Documentary made by The Fascifist

Best of Wacken Open Air - 10 Years (Albums)
Wacken is known around the world as one of the most successful and longest running hard rock and metal festivals. This is a collection of tunes from bands who have played the gig over it's history. It should be noted that these aren't performances from the actual festival but just tunes from the bands that have been there. Thus we get a good spread of the hard music spectrum, from the black/death of Dimmu Borgir to the more thrash leanings of Overkill and Sodom right through to the traditional metal of Savatage, Metal Church and Rage. Hard rock is also represented as we get tracks from DAD, Doro and there is also power metal such as Hammerfall and Primal Fear.
Global Metal (Documentaries)
Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn set out to discover how the West's most maligned musical genre -- heavy metal -- has affected cultures beyond Europe and North America as metal fan and anthropologist Sam Dunn embarks on a whirlwind journey through Asia, South America and the Middle East exploring the underbelly of the world's emerging extreme music scenes, from Indonesian death metal to Chinese black metal and Iranian thrash metal. Global Metal reveals a worldwide community of metalheads who aren't just absorbing metal from the West -- they're transforming it, creating a new form of cultural expression in societies dominated by conflict, corruption and mass-consumerism.
Metal - A Headbanger's Journey (Documentaries)
Sam Dunn, a 30-year old anthropologist, decided to study the plight of a different culture, one he has been a part of since he was a 12-year-old: the culture of heavy metal. Sam sets out on a global journey to find out why this music has been consistently stereotyped, dismissed and condemned and yet is loved so passionately by its millions of fans. Along the way, Sam explores metals obsession with some of life's most provocative subjects - sexuality, religion, violence and death - and discovers some things about the culture that even he can't defend. Shot on location in the UK, Germany, Norway, Canada and the US, this documentary is the first of its kind. It is both a defense of a long-misunderstood art form and a window for the outsider into the spectacle that is heavy metal.
25 Years Louder Than Hell ... The W:O:A Documentary (Documentaries)
WACKEN OPEN AIR has never simply been a ‘festival’…it has, for over a quarter of a century, been a lifestyle, event and community rivaling those seen at the likes of Glastonbury in the UK and Burning Man in the US.

The First World Festival of Negro Arts, Dakar 1966 (Postcolonialism Across the Disciplines LUP) (Books)
Listing: World Festival of Negro Arts 1966
In April 1966, thousands of artists, musicians, performers and writers from across Africa and its diaspora gathered in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, to take part in the First World Festival of Negro Arts (Premier Festival Mondial des arts nègres). The international forum provided by the Dakar Festival showcased a wide array of arts and was attended by such celebrated luminaries as Duke Ellington, Josephine Baker, Aimé Césaire, André Malraux and Wole Soyinka. Described by Senegalese President Léopold Sédar Senghor, as 'the elaboration of a new humanism which this time will include all of humanity on the whole of our planet earth', the festival constituted a highly symbolic moment in the era of decolonization and the push for civil rights for black people in the United States. In essence, the festival sought to perform an emerging Pan-African culture, that is, to give concrete cultural expression to the ties that would bind the newly liberated African 'homeland' to black people in the diaspora. This volume is the first sustained attempt to provide not only an overview of the festival itself but also of its multiple legacies, which will help us better to understand the 'festivalization' of Africa that has occurred in recent decades with most African countries now hosting a number of festivals as part of a national tourism and cultural development strategy.
Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops & the Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream (Books)
Listing: Human Be-In 1967
Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times. Members of bands like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, the Mamas and the Papas, the Turtles, the Eagles, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf, Captain Beefheart, CSN, Three Dog Night, Alice Cooper, the Doors, and Love with Arthur Lee, along with such singer/songwriters as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Judi Sill and David Blue, lived together and jammed together in the bucolic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills. But there was a dark side to that scene as well. Many didn't make it out alive, and many of those deaths remain shrouded in mystery to this day. Far more integrated into the scene than most would care to admit was a guy by the name of Charles Manson, along with his murderous entourage. Also floating about the periphery were various political operatives, up-and-coming politicians, and intelligence personnel - the same sort of people who just happened to give birth to many of the rock stars populating the canyon. And all of the canyon's colorful characters - rock stars, hippies, murderers, and politicos - happily coexisted alongside a covert military installation. Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon is the very strange, but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a hippie utopia.
Hitler's War: What the Historians Neglect to Mention (2009) (Documentaries)
Hitler’s War: What the Historians Neglect to Mention is an English rendition of Hitlers Krieg? Was Guido Knopp Verschweigt by Alphart Geyer (2009). It is a 96-minute “Made in Germany” underground documentary film. It’s the first documentary ever to unabashedly explain — from the German perspective — how World War II really began, and the many efforts that were made by Hitler to avoid it, and to establish a lasting, viable and mutually acceptable peace. It documents many facts that have been deliberately left out of the “official narrative” as presented by the victorious Allies, which we have all been taught since 1945, and of which Germans especially have been constantly reminded since the war ended, with the blame entirely upon Germany’s shoulders. Many of the claims of the Allies that have been widely accepted as fact are refuted here as patently untrue, distorted, or ignored completely. The film is largely based upon the book Der Krieg der viele Väter hatte by German author and historian Gerd Schulze Rhonhof. He has also published Vorkriegsgeschichte (English: The War With Many Fathers) and Ein unvermeidlicher Krieg? — Der Weg zum 1 September 1939 (An Unavoidable War — The Path to September 1st, 1939). Rhonhof is a former high-ranking German military officer (Brigadier General in the Panzer Division) who has done, as any honest historian should, his own deep research in the war archives, and has been assisted many other historians.
Other Losses - Germany Under Allied Occupation 1945-1950 (2017) (Documentaries)
After the Second World War, the Allies betrayed their own civilizing values – the Atlantic Charter, the Four Freedoms, and the Geneva Convention, destroying the moral worth of their great victory along with their victims. More German people were killed by allied action after the war than died during the war. At the same time leaders Herbert Hoover in the USA and P.M. Mackenzie King in Canada ran a massive food relief campaign that fed the world, finally including their former enemies. Hundreds of millions of lives were saved from death by starvation. Never had such vengeance been committed; never had such mercy been shown. This film, based on James Bacque’s books, Other Losses and Crimes and Mercies, uses eyewitness accounts and documentary evidence to tell the story accurately and compassionately.

Adolf Hitler's most poignant orations which had been buried for almost a century are now available for the world to hear. Visit the voices of the past to bear witness their side of history. The unaltered Adolf Hitler, who tried incessantly to avoid the senseless war and its continuation. Star contrast to what the Western Allies and their pet Communist regime in the East had in plans for Europe and the rest of the world. They said Adolf Hitler was a warmonger who wanted to rule the world and subjugate all non-Germanic people. They lied. This documentary is made by The Impartial Truth.
The "Stones" in the Park: The Summer of '69 and the Making of the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the (Books)
Listing: The Stones in the Park 1969
For the Rolling Stones everything changed in the summer of '69. They were no longer the blues band that Brian Jones had put together in 1962; they had stopped being a pop band and had hardly performed on stage since 1967 - and it was live that the Stones always excelled. Drug busts, fall-outs, at least one album that failed to live up to expectations and uncertainty surrounded the band. Finally on Sunday 8 June 1969 Brian Jones left the band he had founded, less than a month later he was dead. Undaunted the Stones, who have always been greater than the sum of their parts, recruited Mick Taylor to play guitar, recorded one of their greatest ever singles, they played the largest ever concert in Britain to that point and Mick Jagger, like many pop singers before him, went off to be a film star. They also became - The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World. "The Stones in the Park" tells this amazing story as well as featuring many unseen photographs. Richard Havers books include Bill Wyman's Blues Odyssey, which won the Blues Foundation's Award For Literature in 2002. Amongst his other books with Bill Wyman are Rolling with the Stones and The Stones - A History in Cartoons. He's also written Sinatra, an illustrated biography of Frank Sinatra; co-authored My Take with Gary Barlow's and Bowie, Bolan & The Brooklyn Boy, Tony Visconti's autobiography.
