    A Short Film


    A screenwriter asks his estranged writing partner
    for feedback on his final letter.


    THE REWRITE



    On a dark and stormy night in 1949, Raymond summons his estranged writing partner Harold to his home. Though they no longer work together or get along, Raymond asks Harold for his notes on his final writing effort: a note explaining why he's ending his life.

    Cutting and critical, Harold says Raymond's note needs a major rewrite. Harold settles down with a drink at Raymond's typewriter and begins to pick apart the note. As they work together, their history -- along with a litany of past grievances -- comes out. Raymond had stolen Harold's ideas and taken the credit, and now Harold is using the opportunity to get his revenge. But as the two square off, it all comes down to who is the better writer in the end.

    Inch by Inch ...

    Ignoring or hiding the truth does not alter reality; the risk remains the same. Disclosure is the correct path forward regardless of how scary it is to some, or what societal/religious beliefs are challenged. We are stronger and smarter together.
    Christopher Mellon on The Potential Consequences of Disclosure

    The Sol Foundation


    Feb 12, 2024
    Christopher Mellon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, discusses the potential consequences of disclosure to the American public.

    Presented by Nolan Laboratory and the Stanford School of Medicine in November 2023 at Stanford University, the symposium convened an unparalleled meeting of leading voices from academia, government and industry to collectively drive forward a new academic legitimacy to UAP.

    The videos encompass the various talks from across the two-day event, addressing the science of UAP, the potential societal impact, and considering the necessary steps to enable responsible sharing of any information held on the topic. Their release reiterates the Foundation’s message of increased transparency and disclosure surrounding UAP information and regulation; a defining theme of the symposium.

    About the Sol Foundation: The Sol Foundation is a research institute that funds and guides scientific research. It produces policy and advisory research aimed at addressing the UAP issue and preparing society for its social implications.

    A Scfi Short Film

    In a world where water is a dwindling resource, a father and his gifted son have a strange encounter that puts their daily life and world view into question.

    "YURI"


    Chris Dolo is a technical engineer for Aqua-Space, a company involved in several polemics about the privatization of drinking water and the lack of it everywhere. He is also the father of Yuri Dolo, an 11-year-old genius with a passion for astrophysics who dreams of another life in the stars. As we follow our two characters in their daily lives, affected by the absence of a maternal figure, a supernatural presence seems to be watching them.

    #Gangsters' Paradise


    How Dubai became a haven for criminals from around the world


    | 60 Minutes Australia



    Aussie criminals are living like kings in the gangsters’ paradise of Dubai ...

    Synopsis

    It might sound strange, but the crime capital of Australia is currently Dubai. That’s because this glitzy mega city in the Persian Gulf has become home to nearly all of our biggest organised crime bosses. Their thinking in moving offshore is that they’re out of reach of federal and state policing authorities, but they might want to think again. As Nick McKenzie reports, an enormous leak of Dubai property records has revealed not only their residential addresses, but also how the city has become the perfect destination for crooks, and suspected criminals, from all around the world to do their dirty business.
