In the lawless Pashtun tribal areas of Pakistan lies Darra Adam Khel, a town where the local industry is the handcrafting of firearms. It has been this way since long before the “War on Terror”. Eleven-year-old Niaz Alfridi works with his gunsmith father Sher Alam, learning how to make and test weapons. A former mujahideen, Sher Alam expects his only son to carry on the family business, but Niaz has different ideas—he wants to go to school.

This week beamafilm is bringing you another powerful documentary from war journalists Sebastian Junger and the late Tim Hetherington. Six years ago, the pair documented the men who manned the Forward Operating Base Restrepo, giving a humanized look into the war many disagreed with. The film did away with any political agenda instead focusing on the people who fight and the effects war has on them. Tragically Tim Hetherington was killed while covering the Libyan Civil War and could not finish the follow up to the popular film Restrepo, however, in his memory Sebastian Junger completed the film with a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The last witness speaks. A man who lived in Hitler’s court, working as his telephone operator and bodyguard, tells a Jewish woman from Israel about the final years of Hitler’s life, about his last hours. He sifts through hundreds of photos, pulling out this one and that one; here he is with Hitler; and here he is standing guard while Hitler sleeps; and here is Eva Braun; and the Goebbles family.

From Academy Award®-nominated director Dan Krauss, Sundance award-winning ‘The Kill Team’ goes behind closed doors to tell the riveting story of Specialist Adam Winfield, a 21-year-old infantryman in Afghanistan who attempted with the help of his father to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. Tragically, his father’s pleas for help went unheeded. Once Adam’s fellow soldiers got wind of what he’d done, they threatened to silence him — permanently. Forced to choose between his conscience and his own survival, Adam found himself drawn into a moral abyss, faced with a split-second decision that would change his life forever.

It’s official! We are at war with the “Death Cult” trying to control Syria and Iraq who call themselves Islamic State. Did we say Death Cult? Wait a minute, our side killed 200,000 in the last Iraq war; what does that make us? The term conjures up Country Joe, whose famous Anti-Vietnam War song fell into the hands of Chris Strachwitz when he needed the money to keep Arhoolie Records going. This story and many more are told in ‘This Aint No Mouse Music’

Things get worse by the day. Expect a “terror alert” in Brisbane just before the G20. AFP will haul away several bearded men and leave families bewildered and crying and the Courier Mail will shout “THEY THREATEN OUR WAY OF LIFE” – or some such. Overkill will be the order of the day and anyone foolishly chatting about be-headings, or destruction will be under threat; like the hapless English guys who, before heading off to the States to party like there was no tomorrow, found there really was none. They had told friends on Facebook how they were going to “destroy America” and were promptly deported.
