USA, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Documentary)
Director: Robert Edwards
Asking "where's the line between healthy scepticism and lunacy?" Robert Edwards' brief essay on the place of paranoia in contemporary American culture, traverses some popular conspiracy theories with appeal to those who cannot "accept the idea of moral anarchy" sketching the social and cultural context for The X Files and Dark Skies.
Using a mixture of clips from popular television, interviews, and his own ironic voice over, Edwards raises questions with a resonance in an Australia where imported American right wing ideas are gaining acceptance with people who seek to portray themselves as the victims of marginalised others.
