Just Violence

Police who engage in torture are condemned by human rights activists, the media, and people across the world who shudder at their brutality. Stark revelations about torture by American forces at places like Guantanamo Bay have stoked a fascination with torture and debates about human rights. Yet despite this interest, the public knows little about the officers who actually commit such violence. Just Violence reveals the moral perspective of perpetrators and how they respond to human rights efforts.

Water:Abundance, Scarcity, and Security in the Age of Humanity
Water: Abundance, Scarcity, and Security in the Age of Humanity, details the remarkable intellectual history of America's water management philosophy. It shows how this philosophy shaped early twentieth-century conservation in the United States, influenced American international development programs, and ultimately shaped programs of global governance that today connect water resources to the Earth system. Schmidt demonstrates how the ways we think about water reflect specific public and societal values, and illuminates the process by which the American approach to water management came to dominate the global conversation about water.

The Complete Guide to Autism & Healthcare
This audiobook is a comprehensive guide in understanding how to deal with a person on the autism spectrum within the medical system, formulating effective communication strategies, and developing best care practices. It covers sensory issues, pain tolerance, body awareness, communication challenges, legal and ethical issues, HIPPA compliance, Americans with Disabilities Act, and much more.

Clean and White
IWhen Joe Biden attempted to compliment Barack Obama by calling him "clean and articulate", he unwittingly tapped into one of the most destructive racial stereotypes in American history. This book tells the history of the corrosive idea that whites are clean and those who are not white are dirty. From the age of Thomas Jefferson to the Memphis Public Workers strike of 1968 through the present day, ideas about race and waste have shaped where people have lived, where people have worked, and how American society's wastes have been managed.

Forgotten Trials of the Holocaust
In the wake of World War II, how were the Allies to respond to the enormous crime of the Holocaust? Even in an ideal world, it would have been impossible to bring all the perpetrators to trial. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to prosecute some. This audiobook uncovers 10 forgotten trials of the Holocaust, selected from the many Nazi trials that have taken place over the course of the last seven decades. It showcases how perpetrators of the Holocaust were dealt with in courtrooms around the world, revealing how different legal systems responded to the horrors of the Holocaust. The audiobook provides a graphic picture of the genocidal campaign against the Jews, through eyewitness testimony and incriminating documents, and traces how the public memory of the Holocaust was formed over time.

The Whole Truth

She’s Not the Guilty One!

Laugh-Out-Loud Satirical Comedy Debuts on DVD & VOD Feb. 5th

“… a fast-paced and hilarious satire … sharp dialog and strong comic performances … packs in rapid-fire laughs …”
— Seattle International Film Festival
For Immediate Release — The laugh-out-loud satirical comedy, The Whole Truth, rolls onto DVD and VOD Feb. 5 from Green Apple Entertainment.

Angela Masters (Elisabeth Röhm, NBC’s Heroes and Law & Order, Miss Congeniality 2, Deconstructing Harry) is an acting coach who makes it big … Not in Hollywood, but by coaching criminal defendants on how to work the system and win jury acquittals.

Washed up TV celeb Gary Langston (Sean Patrick Flanery, The Boondock Saints I and II, Simply Irresistible, Suicide Kings, Powder, The Grass Harp) – who’s had a crush on Angela for years – continues to work with her, hoping for his next break or for her to notice him … whichever comes first.

After helping free ruthless mobster Yaro Maroslav (Eric RobertsRunaway Train, Star 80, King of the Gypsies), Angela overhears him plan a heinous crime and he sets out to kill her. Police and prosecutors, annoyed by all the cases she’s turned upside down, aren’t so eager to help. 

Standing up to the thug, she testifies against him in court, but – thanks to her own handiwork – Maroslav comes off as the good guy. Frantic to convince the jury otherwise, Angela breaks all her own rules, her wacky testimony making headlines around the world. But in the end, karma, love – and justice – finally prevail.

Written and directed by Colleen Patrick.

Also starring: Jim Holmes, Rick Overton, John Fugelsang and Kristina Lilley.



THE WHOLE TRUTH is listed on MAX's *best DVD and Blu-Ray picks* list for February.

MAX's list has a circulation of more than 4 million media outlets and readers world wide, and only reviews films that it considers quality films!

Here's what the reviewer said:

"A fast-paced satirical comedy about a beautiful acting coach (Elizabeth Röhm) who coaches a handsome but ruthless mobster (Eric Roberts) on how to work the court system to win a jury acquittal. She gets help (sort-of) from an also handsome but washed up television celebrity (Sean Patrick Flannery) who happens to be in love with her. Which fellow does she wind up with and does Roberts get off the court hook? Or maybe she can do better than either, and get a dog instead. Check it out. It�s something different� it�s really funny. On DVD from Green Apple Entertainment."

As if this were not enough (I'm breathing in a brown paper bag), our little screwball comedy is on MAX's BEST list alongside other "bests" released in February: Downton Abbey Season III and The Dark Knight Rises.

Here's what Kristina Lilley has to say about working with me on The Whole Truth! Kristina is a major, multi-Emmy Award winning TV star in Spanish speaking nations and on US Spanish TV. I was her acting coach when she lived in the US for a couple years - she speaks English and Spanish without an accent. I'm proud to call her a friend - but she auditioned just like everyone else and nailed the role! She plays a good cop - a detective. She's famous for playing mean, sinister, evil characters for her regular Spanish TV and film roles.

Here's what producer Larry Estes has to say about working with me on The Whole Truth! When he worked at a studio in Hollywood, he green lighted such classics as Sex, Lies and Video Tape. He has gone on to produce some 80 films.
