          General Douglas MacArthur (Gregory Peck), one of the most controversial public figures of our time, is the subject of this superb biographical drama which traces his outstanding careers. In 1942, with his position in the Philippines made hopeless by japan's destruction of more th...an half the planes in his Far East Command, MacArthur leaves pledging 'I shall return!' MacArthur does return, with riveting victories in the Pacific and a deft handling of the democratisation of Japan; he is also armed with Presidential aspirations. While searving in Korea, it is there that his colossal ego and insubordination results in dismissal by Truman in 1951. MacArthur is a compelling story which explores the many facets of his ambitious character. It clearly demonstrates his brillance as a strategist; his lust for publicity and flair for dramatics.

          A soaring, action-packed journey of heroism and sacrifice as one crusading journalist desperately fights to uncover the horrors buried within the infamous Nazi siege of Leningrad in the savage winter of 1941. At the height of World War II, journalist Kate Davis becomes trapped wi...thin the devastated city of Leningrad. Separated from her lover, American writer Philip Parker, Kate is rescued by Nina Tsvetkova, a member of the Leningrad militia who provides refuge for those escaping those horrors of war that have come so close to home. With the enemy's grip closing ever tighter on the war-ravaged city, stray bullets and catastrophic bombing raids a daily peril, this makeshift band of survivors must battle to stay alive and fight for the ultimate prize: their freedom. An epic story, inspired by true events, featuring an acclaimed, award-winning cast, this is the tale of the tragedy that befell Leningrad: at over 800 days, it was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history.

          A fictional story inspired by true events, 'Redacted' is a unique cinematic experience that will force viewers to radically reconsider the filters through which we see and accept events in our world, the power of the mediated image and how presentation and composition influence o...ur ideas and beliefs. Redacted utilizes a variety of created source material-video diaries, produced documentary, surveillance footage, online testimonials, news pieces-to comment on the extreme disconnect between the surface of an image and the reality of ideas and the truth, especially in times of strife. Centred around a small group of American soldiers stationed at a checkpoint in Iraq, Redacted alternates points of view, balancing the experiences of these young men under duress and members of the media with those of the local Iraqi people, illuminating how each have been deeply affected by the current conflict and their encounters with each other. The charged apotheosis of Brian De Palma's filmmaking career, Redacted caps off a body of work which has explored the politics of image-making and reception more fully than any filmmaker.
