About the film, PAX AMERICANA and the weaponization of space…
The prospect of Earth being ruled from space, with war below, is no longer science fiction. The dream of the original “Dr. Strangelove”, Wernher von Braun (from Nazi rocket-scientist to NASA director), has survived every U.S. administration since World War II and continues along with the Military-Industrial companies that profit at the expense of human needs on earth and world peace.
A joint Canadian-French production, the 2010 film is one of the truly important films about space militarization, what it means, and how it impacts everyone on earth. The 85 minute feature documentary was written and directed by Denis Delestrac, and featuring interviews with Noam Chomsky, Craig Eisendrath, Phila resident and former diplomat at the US State Department, Tim Weiner of The New York Times, and numerous others on both sides of the issue.
