Big Lies: The Forgotten Russian Holocaust (39 min) Igor Rudov, dir.
The "Big Lies” concept was coined by Adolf Hitler as a propaganda weapon in his famous “Mein Kampf” but was first used by Joseph Stalin to cover up massive man-made hunger in the Soviet Union in the early 30s. The main character of BIG LIES is an American writer who travels to Russia these days. She meets the last survivors of Holodomor [the famine/genocide of Ukraine]. Soon she understands that the war of Russian peasantry, started by Bolsheviks 100 years ago, isn’t over yet. She also uncovers many controversial facts about the role played by American media and business in the early ’30s in Soviet Russia. Even more staggering – she starts to understand the connection between those events and current domination of fake news and total mistrust on today’s post-truth world.

Reagan's dictum that government is the problem, not the solution to our problems, is well-known amongst friends of liberty. Are we, however, letting voters too easily off the hook? In this session, we will explore some problems with democracy, and the American Founding Fathers may not be entirely innocent either.

Miracle in East Texas
Inspired by a true story, Kevin Sorbo (‘Doc’ Boyd) and John Ratzenberger (‘Dad’ Everett) play Bible-quoting con men in the 1930s. After being run out of Oklahoma, they set up their ‘oil rig’ scam in Texas, seducing wealthy widows and the members of the only black church in the county. But just as their plan comes to fruition, everything suddenly goes awry, and they are faced with the most important decision of their lives. Funny, engaging and uplifting, this is the incredible story of two men discovering the good that is buried within themselves.

The Surge (11 min) Jared Sichel and Gabriel Yaffe, dirs.
Anti-government sentiment is at an all-time high. In an effort to prove to Americans how much they need the government, Congress has announced that for 12 hours, all laws and regulations will be suspended, and all crimes will go unpunished. CNNBC reporter Lyle Callahan braves the streets of Los Angeles hoping to capture gruesome footage of Americans tearing each other apart during the government’s 12-hour purge. But Lyle is sorely disappointed to discover that when there are no regulations, lemonade stands pop up, prescription drug prices plummet, and homeowners can safely add a sunroom without spending thousands of dollars in permits and inspections. Never mind reality, though; Lyle is determined to let CNNBC’s viewers know just how horrible everything really is.

Build Your Wealth Like a Pro with Options
In today's stock market, with nonstop headlines about macro risks and high-frequency trading, it's an ideal time for individual investors to utilize the flexibility of options. You can use calls and puts to define your risk and limit cash exposure on speculative plays, or simply to hedge your portfolio of stock and bond holdings. But option selection can be overwhelming, whether you're new to the market or have some experience... and choosing the right strike price and expiration date can make or break an options trade. Join Schaeffer's Senior Market Strategist Matthew Timpane, one of our resident experts at buying option premium, for this easy-to-follow presentation on how to pick options like the pros do. You'll learn about timing event-based trades, the importance of money management, and how to DIY strike selection like an options market veteran -- all while getting an inside look at how we bagged some big winners with Schaeffer's time-tested contrarian trading methodology.

The Fight of our Lives: Defeating the Ideological War against the West (66 min) Gloria Z. Greenfield, dir.
“Civilizations, empires, great powers can fall apart very fast. Collapse can come suddenly, like a thief in the night. And we should be very wary of assuming that our civilization, the civilization of the early 21st century West, will oblige us by declining gradually." (historian Niall Ferguson). Featuring compelling observations and insights from esteemed thought leaders,The Fight of Our Lives addresses the various internal and external threats facing Western Civilization today, and cautions that if we don’t recognize these grave dangers now and rouse ourselves to resist and overcome them, then it is no hyperbole to say that the West as we know it may come to—as Ferguson warned—a swift and inexorable end.

aKasha (78 min) Hajooj Kuka, dir.
Adnan is a Sudanese revolutionary who is considered a war hero. His love for his AK47 rifle is equalled only by his feelings for Lina, his long-suffering sweetheart. When Adnan is late to return to his military unit after his leave, army commander Blues launches a kasha: the rounding up and arresting of truant soldiers. Adnan is caught-off guard and makes a run for it with pacifist Absi. The two unlikely friends plot ways to reunite Adnan with his gun – and with Lina – while avoiding their fellow soldiers. Through a series of wry and humorous incidents over 24 hours, we explore life and ideology in rebel-held areas of Sudan.

What's the Plan?! A Portfolio Approach to Planned Giving
The 2017 tax reform package took away many deductions, but there is one still holding strong: the charitable deduction. This session explores how strategic planned giving tactics can allow you to maximize your philanthropic impact while minimizing your tax burden. You’ll hear how taking a portfolio approach to planned giving can allow you to support the other causes you care about in a tax-efficient way, both in life and as part of your estate planning. We’ll also explore simple ways to help you protect your charitable legacy. On the call, we’ll explore: The top mistakes donors make that undermine their donor intent Key tax-law changes, particularly around the estate tax, that influence the timing and structure of your giving The critical details of wisely structuring outright gifts from your estate Using charitable vehicles wisely so your giving has more impact The important tools you need to know about for creating income streams and passing wealth on with minimized tax implications

When a father of eight invents a genius way to fill 100 water balloons in 60 seconds, his invention "Bunch O Balloons" becomes an overnight success on Kickstarter and an international viral hit. Scrambling to get his idea to market and bring financial security to his family, he applies for a US Patent, but his plans of success are blindsided when his genius idea is stolen by a big company before he can make his first dime. Thrust into a battle to save his invention, he uncovers the shocking truth that our patent system is weakening, property rights are at risk and American Innovation is dying. Learn how big tech companies, China, opportunistic lawyers, and our own Patent office are robbing American inventors of their ideas, their labor and their financial investments.

Architects of Woke:Judith Butler's War on Science (6 min) Rob Montz, dir. PANEL The Rise of Radical Feminism and Genderism in Academia
ARCHITECTS OF WOKE exposes the outsized influence of Judith Butler, the University of California at Berkeley feminist gender theorist famous for making the argument that gender is a performance rather than biological reality, leading to the notion that gender is an endlessly divisible spectrum that can have far more than two types, male and female, which is contradicted by substantial evidence. Butler’s theories, spread through dense, opaque jargon, gave birth to the notion that gender is subjective and non-binary, which some lesbian activists assert has corrupted feminism and harmed women. Butler is a powerful force in academe; she serves on the executive council of the Modern Language Association, which sets writing standards for high school and undergraduate students.Introduction: Capital Research Center

American Consequences 2020 (25 min) Fred Gundry, dir. PANEL Are Millennial Voters a Menace to Freedom or its Salvation?
What seems radical today could become mainstream tomorrow. For the first time in American history, a divided populace could put a socialist President in the White House in the 2020 election. AMERICAN CONSEQUENCES 2020 examines the recent rise in popularity of socialism in the United States, featuring original interviews with former congressman Dr. Ron Paul and humorist P.J. O'Rourke. Join politicians, policy experts, and market authorities as we look at why so many young Americans are drawn to the short-term promises of socialism, and what prior generations stand to lose if the nation heads down this perilous path.

One Laptop Is a Passport to the World (4 min) Melissa Mann, prod. PANEL: Trade Wars and Tariffs: Protecting American Jobs or Destroying the Global Economy?
At Juana Manso Elementary in the impoverished Dock Sud neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina, it’s a thrill to watch students use computers to explore new corners of the world—but easy access to technology wasn’t always an option, largely due to a 35 percent import tariff that put computers out of reach for most schools. Thanks to the efforts of Libertad y Progreso, one of Atlas Network’s local partners, computers are helping Juana Manso’s students explore the world—and change their futures for the better. Atlas Network’s partners around the world are creating home-grown solutions to help people lift themselves out of poverty and improve economic rights for all.

The Creepy Line (81 min) M. A. Taylor, dir.
An eye-opening documentary, THE CREEPY LINE reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle – hence powerful – manner in which they do it. The title is culled from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.” However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line everyday.” Containing ground-breaking interviews with Jordan B. Peterson, Peter Schweizer, and others, THE CREEPY LINE offers an explosive look at the meddling and intervening done by Google and Facebook on their supposedly “neutral platforms.” But is government intervention the answer, or should we let the market do its work?

No Safe Spaces (90 min) Justin Folk, dir. PANEL Battle over Free Speech Expands Beyond Campus
Adam Carolla, host of the hugely popular podcast the Adam Carolla Show, and radio talk show host Dennis Prager have teamed up to create a feature-length film that takes them to college campuses across the country, interviewing students and professors, comedians and commentators on the left and right, and those who have been impacted by the silencing of different voices on campus, analyzing the value of so-called safe-spaces. Viewers will also be taken back into time to Prager and Carolla’s youth with dramatic and comedic recreations of life-shaping moments in their lives including Prager’s visit to the totalitarian Soviet state and Carolla’s experience growing up in a single parent household. Despite having very different backgrounds, Prager and Carolla share a deep concern with the direction of our country and believe what’s happening on college campuses today is the bleeding edge of our cultural decline.
