For-Immediate Release: Psychotropic Films announces the forthcoming public release of "Controlled Bleeding", a short-topic film by experimental filmmaker Barton Santello.
This film, originally developed and produced in 2002 to address the root-cause of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, has been expanded and improved for public release in March of 2007.
The film attempts to demonstrate how at least 35-years of ideologically-driven foreign policy, globalized corporate economics and an unsustainable fossil-fuel based national infrastructure, has led to the United States to form alliances with corrupt governments, and military misadventures in foreign lands. These neo-imperialist actions resulted in the rise of middle-eastern based terror organizations, such as Al-Qaeda, the focus of which is on expelling foreign influence (political, military, culture, & resource extraction) from Islamic nations.
Sound design for this film will be provided by "A Produce"
