Mosaic of Facts by Miguel Francis-Santiago
On September 11, RT Documentary released a new great movie by an American film-maker Miguel Francis-Santiago, also famous for his works “Crimea for Dummies” and “Donetsk: An American Glance”. In his documentary about information wars Miguel goes for real facts and evidences, trying to find out who stands behind the walls of disinformation and benefits from double standard propaganda, what is the role of government and other politicians in managing world’s leading MSM, why some serious events are being completely misrepresented and why so many obvious crimes such as coup d’etat in Kiev, civil war in Ukraine or MH17 case have never been investigated properly. The date of film release was chosen not without a reason either—the journalist explains on his Facebook page what the 11th of September means for him personally:
“For me the 11th of September is a date that will always be the day the Twin Towers, symbols of freedom as I then thought, came crashing down like a baseball being dropped from a 100 story building. I will never forget the image that I saw, standing across the Hudson in downtown Brooklyn, waiting for my Mom to pick me up while the phone lines were completely down. The truth about this disaster, that would trigger world-wide changes in the way we view things and value this planet, might never come out into the public domain.
Twenty eight years prior to 9/11/2001, another event took place on September 11th 1973, that would also shake up the foundation of my family. On that day, democratically elected President Salvador Allende was toppled along with his government in the Republic of Chile. The coup d’etat was done by General Augusto Pinochet, who as you may know by now was supported by the United States of America. During Pinochet’s rule, at least 3000 people have been executed and disappeared without a trace. During those days, when the police were going around Santiago looking for those in disagreement with the new government, my grandfather Nelson would hide my father Frank and uncle Manuel in the attic from any possible repercussions. Twenty eight years was enough for the truth behind this event to finally come into public domain.
I really wanted for my next film “Mosaic of Facts” to be released on this date. I wanted to underline that in an era of digital technology the saying that “Information is power” has never been more true! Information controls the world and the information dominance has been at the hands of the West and U.S. in particular. My investigations in Crimea and Donetsk confirm this conclusion on how important it is, to control the flow of information and the narrative. I have relatives both in Russia and America, many have been split by this information war. I’m saddened by the fact that the initiator of this ?infowar? is the United States—a country that supposedly screams of equal rights and opportunities for ALL the people in the world.”—Miguel Francis-Santiago.
Miguel also presented his new video log called “Mosaic of Truth”, where the journalist will continue providing facts on how the Western media distorts the interpretation of events happening in the world while discussing goals and aspirations of the people who stand behind such media.
