dokumentar, historie: The Waco Siege of 1993 shook American society to its core. Following a 51-day stand-off with the FBI, the Texas compound of the unorthodox Christian group the Branch Davidians was burnt to the ground, killing most of its inhabitants. The official record stated that the Davidians had started the fire themselves to avoid capture. However, with meticulous and exhaustive investigation this ground breaking film claims to reveal a far more sinister truth. The horrific events of April 19th 1993 live long on the American memory: following a 51-day stand-off between the FBI and the Branch Davidians, the compound of the Davidians eventually burnt down, killing 76 of its members, many of them women and children. The FBI and the ATF have repeatedly asserted their probity in the affair, maintaining that the Davidians were a dangerous cult who were stockpiling illegal weapons and abusing children within the compound, and that they themselves had started the fire in an act of mass suicide. Waco: The Rules of Engagement fearlessly challenges the US government, dismantling their narrative with painstaking detail and presenting a far more troubling account of events.

dokumentar, krig: KRISTIN SOLBERG ANBEFALER: "Når jeg dekker kriger, ser jeg mye brutalitet. Det er som om grensen for hva vi mennesker er i stand til å gjøre mot andre, flyttes til det ekstreme. Slik har det vært i kriger gjennom tidene, men eksemplene ble altfor mange under det brutale styret til IS i Syria og Irak. Heldigvis finnes noen som viser oss den andre siden: folk som risikerer livet for å hjelpe andre, for å kjempe mot brutalitet og som når det gjelder, viser hvilket mot og hvilken styrke som finnes i noen mennesker. En krig får kanskje frem det verste i mennesket, men definitivt også det beste. City of Ghost forteller en slik historie: Om helt vanlige mennesker i helt uvanlige omstendigheter, som risikerer livet for det de tror på. Aktivistene i gruppen "Raqqa is being slaughered silently" smuglet i årevis ut informasjon om livet i Raqqa, IS selverklærte hovedstad, en by der brutaliteten rådet, og som var mer eller mindre stengt for kontakt med verden utenfor. Aktivistene gjorde det med livet som innsats – sitt eget og sine familiemedlemmers. Deres innsats er imponerende, og det er også filmen som følger deres liv og arbeid. Den er nær, sår, brutal og viktig. Det er en film der hårene reiser seg og øynene blir blanke." (Kristin Solberg)
