A.N.S.W.E.R. Film Series - SF Premiere! Thurs. June 7, 7:30pm ATA, 992 Valencia St. at 21st St., San Francisco, $6 donation New documentary by renowned Venezuelan filmmaker Angel Palacios “Posada Carriles: Made in USA” People from all over the world are protesting the protection that the U.S. government has given to the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles. He was recently judged by a U.S. court for violately immigration laws, instead of being prosecuted for the numerous terrorist acts for which he is responsible. Twenty years ago, he escaped from a Venezuelan prison where he was being tried for his involvement in the bombing of Cubana airplane killing all 73 passengers on board. The Venezuelan government has filed a petition before U.S. authorities asking for his extradition. However, the Bush adminstration has failed to respond to this demand for justice. The Venezuelan documentary film “Posada Carriles: Made in USA”, a Telesur and PanaFilms co-production, reveals the terrorist path of Posada Carriles and his longstanding relation with the CIA, dating back to the 1960’s. It is the result of two years of meticulous research of an investigative team that examined declassified documents and criminal files, and interviewed witnesses and survivors from several Latin American countries. The network of terror that the CIA established in Latin America—in which Posada Carriles (alias “Bambi”, alias “Basilio”) acted as one of the key figure— is exposed step by step through the courageous testimonies of victims whose family members were killed by him or under his orders. It also includes the findings of anti-terrorist specialists and investigative journalists, and the experience of counter-intelligence agents. The demand for justice for the survivors and those who lost family members because of Posada Carriles’ actions comes to life on the screen to remind us all that terrorism cannot be justified under any circumstances, and that as said by George W. Bush himself, “Those that harbor terrorists, are also terrorists”. 90 minutes, 2007 Sponsored by the ANSWER Coalition and National Committee to Free the Cuban Five
