Freedom Next Time
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungJohn Pilger is one of the world's pre-eminent investigative journalists and documentary film-makers. In FREEDOM NEXT TIME he looks at five countries, in each of which a long struggle for freedom has taken place; in each the people, having shed blood and dreams, are still waiting. In Afghanistan, Iraq and South Africa there has been the promise of hope, and even an 'official' freedom, but the reality of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the cycle of violence continues with no resolution in sight. Once again John Pilger gives a voice to the people living through these momentous times and, in gripping detail, shows us the lives behind the headlines.

Pressestimmen"Pilger is the closest we have to the great correspondents of the 1930s... The truth in his hands is a weapon, to be picked up and brandished and used in the struggle against evil and injustice" Guardian "John Pilger is the antidote to easy, comfortable thinking, to smugness, to ignorance" Daily Telegraph "Pilger's gift is for finding the image, the instant, that reveals all - he is a photographer using words instead of a camera" -- Salman Rushdie "John Pilger unearths, with steely attention to facts, the filthy truth and tells it as it is. I salute him" -- Harold Pinter "The array of interviews with the voiceless and abused provides an indispensable corrective to the litany of disinformation we are fed by the media, and for this achievement Pilger is surely the most outstanding journalist in the world today" Guardian
