    Are War and Oil connected?
    You decide as we take a spin in this SUV turned Warrior.

    This short film has now been made an official selection of many film festivals including:
    The Zeitgeist Media Festival Los Angeles 2011
    The Big Bear International Film Festival 2011
    The California Shorts International Film Festival 2011 (Winter)
    The SURGE! International Film Festival
    Topanga Earth Day/ Consciousness film Expo
    Riverside International Film Festival Audience (voted as a "Best of the Fest")
    Heal One World/ Awareness Film Festival (given Independent Vision Award)

    And has been well received by audiences of all stripes.
    Whether military or civilian, this short tale resonates with each of us in some way. Many first time audience members have been struck by the profound impact that such a brief film can have, when it is done well.
    With wars of Occupation raging without an actual end in sight, this project is more poignant than ever.
    even though our most recent president has claimed a withdrawal from Iraq, there remain many thousands of military contractors, advisers, trainers and support personnel. In Afghanistan, the US still maintains a fighting and occupation force of many tens of thousands of troops, tanks, helicopters, drones and support forces for them all.

    If the result of World War Two is an example, we may never leave.
    Note that Germany is still a patient host to innumerable US military bases and Japan has been thoroughly occupied by US armed forces to this very day. In fact the Island of Okinawa, home to an indigenous Japanese minority is riddled with 36 US military installations!
    the incidents of rape and murder on and around our military bases goes on unabated as our troops and sailors travel their host regions with near impunity. The great majority of US armed forces serve with dignity and a strong moral compass, but the blowback stemming from the countless US military bases worldwide is irreversible.

    The tide is turning and it's time to grab our surfboards to catch the wave.

    Question the prevailing paradigm. Ask why.
