Ep. 74 - Activist Cinema

Aaron flies solo on this show in which he looks at Activist Cinema, a favorite documentary sub-genre of his.  First, we look at what counts as Activist Cinema and then move in to a look at four different companies/groups/collectives that are active in this genre.  In no particular order; CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective, Citizens United, As-Sahab and Participant Media.  Or to describe them another way-by their political ideology-in the same order; Anarchist Activists, Religious Extremists (Republican), Liberal Progressives and one more Religious Extremists (al-Qaeda).
