Our weekly documentary screening, curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.

A young man sets fire to himself on the streets of Tunisia. Revolution, riots and bloodshed are spreading throughout the Arab world. This film also analyses very misleading (and staged) international reports, including those from Al Jazeera, of an ‘uprising’ in Homs, Syria. Blood is shed, regimes are toppled. Western audiences cheer them on, but few in the West dare ask the question: are the people of these countries any better off?
