At 9/11 Truth Outreach we encourage people to talk about what happened on September 11, 2001 and to demand accountability from the institutions that are necessary for a real democracy to exist.
The origin of this new film, "The Anatomy of a Great Deception (AGD)," has its roots in people doing outreach around 9/11 for thirteen long years. During this time, against the greatest media silence the world has ever known, activists, concerned citizens and other interested people have spread the message that the official story about what happened on 9/11 cannot be true.
Some people heard the message and passed it on to others who also then became aware. Then, someone passed the information along again. For those of us who have done outreach about 9/11 for a long time, the last five years has seen a shift that is palpable. We encounter many people who have not heard the details, but they have heard enough and are now willing to listen.
David Hooper, director of the feature film "The Anatomy of a Great Deception" heard one innocent question that turned into a personal investigation of 9/11. Where did this innocent question originate? It was not from an article in the mainstream media. It was not from an article in what is known as the alternative media. It was from the network of those working and questioning to ensure that the truth about 9/11 would be known.
As explained in the film, during David's search for answers, each question led to another, until eventually it became clear that the official story of 9/11 that he and all his acquaintances had been told could not possibly be true. In addition, the filmmaker experienced the same reaction from his family and friends that many truth-aware people experience -- feeling isolated from family members and friends with a barrier that seemed to grow larger with each recognition that another major fact about 9/11 was wrong.
David Hooper never expected to be leading the 9/11 Truth movement's next wave of activity when he began to ask questions about what really happened on September 11, 2001. David recalled, "'The Anatomy of a Great Deception' is the result of my initial unanswered questions. How could World Trade Center Building 7 fall when no plane collided into it? This film is the result of my engagement in conversations with others on their thoughts and findings on 9/11. I hope this film can further that dialogue."
David explains, "as a way of reaching out to loved ones, I decided to make the film, in hopes that it would help them grasp the facts that had shattered my worldview." As he says it, "I had one chance to get my life back." This film was that chance and we are all grateful for his perseverance and skill as a story teller and filmmaker. On March 8th at the Motor City Casino's Amnesia Room, Anatomy of a Great Deception was well received by a stunned audience of family, friends and business associates.
Billed as a "fast-paced, first-person docu-thriller," The Anatomy of a Great Deception" provides a fresh perspective on what happened to the World Trade Center's Twin Towers and Building 7. Building 7 was a 47-story, steel-framed structure that was not hit by a plane, was destroyed almost seven hours after the second of the Twin Towers as destroyed. Some of the comments about the initial screening of the film were:
- "The research is beautifully woven into Hooper's story as he discovers the truth about our world." - E. Wentworth, Florida.
- "Well organized, fascinating and intense. You'll come out with some deep inner questions to answer for yourself." - M.J. Lefevre, Michigan
- "Unbelievable. Excellent. I am speechless." - "J. Drougas, Illinois
Hooper's search for answers put him on a path along with Richard Gage, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) whose documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speaks Out (ESO) was instrumental in proving to the filmmaker's satisfaction that the official story about 9/11 was unsupportable. Since its founding AE911Truth has garnered signatures of over 2,200 architects and engineers, verified and vetted, on a petition calling for a new independent investigation. With the support of the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth community, consisting of over 45,000 supporters, over a thousand individual donations were received to raised $53,700 via the crowd sourcing website https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-anatomy-of-a-great-deception-www-agdmovie-com to bring the film to its completion. Along the way, Ed Asner and Omar Sharif became supporters, as well.
The film has been enthusiastically supported by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. "This film has the best chance in years to push the 9/11 debate into the mainstream," said Richard Gage.
"This is a very compelling film," said Omar Sharif, Actor, Lawrence of Arabia. "It will open many people's eyes," not to mention the documentary has already become an "Official Selection" of this year's 911 TRUTH Film Festival (Oakland, CA)and is already in negotiations for domestic and foreign distribution.
"This is a tremendous film," said Ed Asner, who played a lead role in the Mary Tyler Moore Show.
The Anatomy of a Great Deception makes its Detroit Premiere on September 5, 2014 at The Fillmore Detroit. In addition to the red carpet, VIP lounge, gift bags and gifting suite, DJ Lady Leb and Mr. Jeffrey Woodward will be providing the musical entertainment. Richard Gage will also be on site to deliver the film's introduction.
"Perhaps this film will get the 9/11 debate past the tipping point and into the mainstream," Hooper says. "We'll soon find out, because it's the 9/11 community that will, once again, have to rally to get the truth into the spotlight."
