Global poverty did not just happen. It began with military conquest, slavery and colonization that resulted in the seizure of land, minerals and forced labor. Today, the problem persists because of unfair debt, trade and tax policies -- in other words, wealthy countries taking advantage of poor, developing countries.

Martin Sheen, narrates The End of Poverty?, a feature-length documentary  by award-winning director, Philippe Diaz, which explains how today's financial crisis is a direct consequence of these unchallenged policies that have lasted centuries. Consider that 20% of the planet's population uses 80% of its resources and consumes 30% more than the planet can regenerate.

Filmed in the slums of Africa and the barrios of Latin America, The End of Poverty? features expert insights from: Nobel prize winners in Economics, Amartya Sen and Joseph Stiglitz; acclaimed authors Susan George, Eric Toussaint, John Perkins, Chalmers Johnson; university professors William Easterly and Michael Watts; government ministers such as Bolivia's Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera and the leaders of social movements in Brazil, Venezuela, Kenya and Tanzania . It is produced by Cinema Libre Studio in collaboration with the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation.

Can we really end poverty within our current economic system? Think again. www.theendofpoverty.com

The film has been selected to over 25 international film festivals and will be released in theatres in November 2009.  Produced by Cinema Libre Studio with the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, 104mins, 2008, in English, Spanish, French with English Subtitles

What we know today as the Holocaust was researched, rehearsed and refined in Africa with African people long before 1939. Although it is hardly mentioned, German people in their colony of Namibia stole land from African  people and when they fought back built railroads,  labour camps and medical experiment labs in Namibia in order  to work them to death or experiment on their bodies to see how they were able to cope with heat. This happened in 1906 and the German government even apologised in 2004. This underviewed documentary states the case with detailed testimony from Namibian and German people and evidence from German secret files.

The fact is that there were also black people in Germany before, during and after WW2 . Some even joined the army, some were entertainers, hundreds were sterilised and a vast number were sent to the gas chambers.
