The legend of Boggy Creek

Based on a true story, the folks of Boggy Creek near Fouke, Arkansas, chronicle their experiences living near the legendary lair of a huge and terrifying monster.

Outstanding: This is reminiscent of the 1970s documentaries of Mutual of Omaha. Some of you may remember that series. This is a very personal tale of a local group of people trying to deal with an unexplainable appearance and disappearance of a Sasquatch type of monster. ~Mike

Paris 1919

"How can you make peace when what you really want is revenge? In the wake of 37 million casualties at the end of World War I, President Woodrow Wilson took his dream of a League of Nations to Paris to seek "peace everlasting," joining over 30 international delegations who descended upon the city fo the most ambitious peace talks in history. Helmed by the Big Four (the United States, France, Great Britain and Italy), the Paris Peace Conference ultimately and ironically sowed the seeds of resentment that led to World War II."

The film uses actors as the historical figures, intertwined with newsreel footage and writings of the Big Four players. We cannot know what would have happened if the original Wilson peace everlasting plan had succeeded.

Released in 2008
