More Views

Over an impressive 35 year career John Pilger's determination to uncover the truth and unearth the facts underlying numerous social and political injustices has taken him to every corner of the globe.

2000 – Paying The Price: Killing the Children of Iraq
John Pilger and Alan Lowry travel to Iraq with Denis Halliday, a former assistant secretary-general of the United Nations who resigned over what he called the ‘immoral policy’ of economic sanctions. There they find a suffering nation held hostage to the compliance of a dictator, Saddam Hussein, over whom they have no control.

2002 – Palestine Is Still The Issue
John Pilger returns to the Occupied Territories of the West Bank of Gaza where he filmed a documentary with the same title, about the same issues in 1974. He finds the basic problems unchanged: a desperate, destitute people whose homeland is illegally occupied by the world’s fourth biggest military power. He hears extraordinary stories from Palestinians, though most of his interviews are with Israelis whose voices are seldom heard, including the remarkable witness of a man who lost his daughter in a suicide bombing. This film was nominated for a BAFTA, a British Academy Award.
2003 – Breaking The Silence: Truth and Lies in the War on Terror
This film, set in Afghanistan, Iraq and Washington, looks at President Bush’s ‘war on terror’ and the ‘liberation’ of countries where bloodshed and repression continue. In Afghanistan, Pilger investigates the claim that life has improved for the women of Iraq now that the Taliban have gone. In Washington, he interviews leading American officials, ‘neo-cons’ in the Bush regime. John Bolton, of the State Department, now the US Ambassador to the United Nations, says he regards the figure of 10,000 civilian deaths in Iraq as ‘quite low’. Breaking The Silence won a number of awards and was nominated for a BAFTA.
