Watch We Love You

In the Rainbow spirit of free sharing we have made We Love You available under a creative commons license. Burning Man is now a household name but the older, more fascinating, Rainbow Gatherings are still obscure. Every summer since 1972 thousands of people co-create a temporary city deep in the wilderness of our national forests. This isn’t a music festival, people are there to practice anarchy and hippy spirituality. The “main event” is an elaborate prayer for peace on July 4th. We Love You documents the 2008 Rainbow Gathering in Wyoming. The Rainbows’ peaceful ways are challenged when federal agents charged with monitoring them shoot pepper spray projectiles into the children’s’ area of the gathering.

Soprano State

Envelopes of money exchanged for political favors. Cash paid for back-door deals. Construction contracts handed out for those who bribed elected officials. Sound like an episode of “The Sopranos”? Worse. Welcome to New Jersey, where politics and corruption go hand-in-hand.

The documentary takes viewers on a wild ride of political power and corruption that started when New Jersey was still a colony. The film exposes elected officials who ran on platforms promising to end the very practices they now find themselves behind bars for. The real organized crime in New Jersey is committed by the politicians.

The film features interviews and commentary from the attorneys, politicians, federal prosecutors and journalists who witnessed it all. The film is narrated by Tony Darrow, who has played in a variety of films, including The Sopranos and Goodfellas.
