'In Whose Interest?' is a fast moving and powerful documentary in response to 9/11. San Francisco and London-based filmmaker David Kaplowitz leads us on an eye-opening historical journey through the past 50 years of United States intervention, questioning the motives and examining the effects of US foreign policy over that time span. Revealing a pattern of intervention, the film focuses on Guatemala, Vietnam, East Timor, El Salvador, and Palestine/Israel. Archival footage, photographs, recently declassified documents, and media tidbits are dynamically interwoven with personal eyewitness accounts and commentary from academics, such as Noam Chomsky, religious leaders and politicians.
