Watch the John Pilger Film That Defied a Campaign to Ban It and Told a Timeless Truth
John Pilger’s 2002 film Palestine Is Still The Issue bore the same title as his film 24 years earlier. Shown on ITV in Britain and around the world, the film and Pilger were attacked by a virulent trolls’ campaign in the US, including death threats, and finally vindicated by the Independent Television Commission as a work of “thoroughness and historical integrity”. With the present-day massacre of Palestinians by Israeli snipers on the border with Gaza the film tells a timeless truth. You can watch it here.
Watch also The War You Don’t See (2013) for how the Palestinians and their Israeli occupiers are reported in the media.
John Pilger has won an Emmy and a BAFTA for his documentaries, which have also won numerous US and European awards. His articles appear worldwide in newspapers such as The Guardian, The Independent, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Mail & Guardian (South Africa), Aftonbladet (Sweden), Il Manifesto (Italy). He writes a regular column for the New Statesman, London. In 2003, he was awarded the prestigious Sophie Prize for ’30 years of exposing injustice and promoting human rights.’ In 2009 he was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize. His earlier film is The War You Don’t See (2010). His new film, The Coming War on China, is available in the U.S. from www.bullfrogfilms.com. He can be reached through his website www.johnpilger.com
