Starsuckers

Starsuckers is a 2009 British documentary film aiming to expose the “shams and deceit involved in creating a pernicious celebrity culture”.

Directed by Chris Atkins, director of the 2007 documentary Taking Liberties, it shows the production team planting a variety of celebrity-related stories in the UK media, such as a claim that the singer Avril Lavigne had been seen asleep in a nightclub. A variety of tabloid newspapers accepted the stories without corroboration or evidence.

Fraude: Mexico 2006

Fraude: Mexico 2006 is a fascinating documentary about event occurring before, during, and after the presidential election of July 2006. Through images shot by ordinary citizens and commentary by the major players, the documentary questions the authenticity of the election with victory to PRD candidate, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador snatched in the final hour. Directed and written by Luis Mandoki (Voces Inocentes), Fraude: Mexico 2006 reflects in a bravely way, non-exempt from controversy, the intrigues and manipulations of the system.
