Who's Wearing Emperor's New Clothes - if so many people believe in
something how can it be wrong! by geo geller is "still" a work in progress
documentary, started after 9/11 2001. The title, as you might imagine comes from the children's story about the child who had no fear and no agenda, pointing out to us and everybody that not only was the emperor wearing no clothes but metaphorically speaking so was everybody who didn't say anything and believe the
propaganda of what they were told because if so many people believe in something how can it be wrong - sound familiar - the child's story if you dig a little deeper is a profound insight into our individual and cultural identity and to the power of fear, the fear of power and the fear of not belonging and asks the question, Who is really Wearing the Emperor's New Clothes?.... and
indirectly or directly asks about our relationship to ourselves and each other that we have been repeating the same propaganda, wars, violence, fear, suffering, poverty.
Who's Wearing Emperor's New Clothes started because 9/11 was a wake up call to the world and to me, i live a mile from ground zero but as far as i was concerned instead of examining why and what was the message
in those special delivery air mail letters that took the lives of so many letterOriginally to make sense out of
the nonsense of the world we live in, post 9/11 and all the propaganda and
nationalism that was going on and everybody was beating some drum or another for some injustice or justice as we the people have been doing since before forever - I was thinking of 30 & 60 sec tv/radio/in-theater baby-documentaries thought-provoking
commercials, interstitials, adverts that didn't sell you something but asked you to think and to question, and ask questions, as opposed to buy buy buy commercials....
below is the older version done in early 2000's when bandwidth was at a crawls pace but still works - i leave it so you can see some of what is in mthe playlist above
