"Controlled Bleeding" - March Release Scheduled

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"

Scheduled Showings: Arivaca Independent Filmmakers Exposition (March 24, 2007)
Scheduled Submission: Shortfest (April 2007)

You're still our favorite idiosyncratic filmmaker. We're looking forward to "Controlled Bleeding," even though we know how it ends and that doesn't make us very happy.

Thanks for living on the edge of things...
