banned documentary

Spanish documentary on YouTube (+ ENG subs).

So, there’s this new documentary in Spain which is pretty good if you want to learn more about Spanish politics and advanced vocabulary (I wouldn’t recommend watching it if you don’t have around a B2 level in Spanish or more, even if it includes subtitles).

The documentary is called “Las cloacas del Estado” or “Spain - The State’s Secret Cesspit”. It’s about how some members of the government used the police and public funding to attack politicians with different ideologies in Catalonia. Expect vocabulary regarding journalism, politics, corruption, justice, etc. This documentary was banned in all TV channels except for TV3 and IB3 (TV channels from Catalonia and the Balearic Islands).

(NOTE: There’re people in the documentary who speak in Catalan, but 99% of the video is in Spanish).

B99 + Apartment AU: in which Jake, Charles, Rosa, and Amy live together while attending the police academy.

  • They technically see each other every day at training, but they all still try to hang out together once a week. (Usually movie nights, occasionally game nights, sometimes with alcohol, always in pajamas.) 
  • Charles offers to make dinner for all of them some time during their first week together. – He makes a dish involving bull testicles and is never allowed to cook for them again. (He’s still allowed to make hot cocoa though, which Jake asks for every time he comes home with a bruise.) 
  • Amy dies a little on the inside every morning Jake sleepily pads into the kitchen, hair still messed up from sleep and voice still a bit hoarse. 
  • The smoke alarm goes off almost every time Amy attempts to cook something. 
  • The number of times Amy has thought about just walking over to Jake’s room and kissing him senseless is  r i d i c u l o u s.
  • Rosa has at least three extra locks on her door, and none of the others have seen the inside of her room. (After catching Gina sneak out of there the morning after their graduation, Jake bribes her into telling him exactly how it looks like.) 
  • Jake somehow manages to leave various articles of clothing everywhere, and this annoys Amy to no end. (Partly because each rumpled shirt just makes her think about what it would feel like to tear his clothes off herself.)
  • Amy puts a calendar on their fridge and implements a cleaning schedule, with the chores all divvied up between the four of them. Jake complains very loudly about this at first but later has a ton of fun dancing around their living room while vacuuming and scream-singing Taylor Swift songs.
  • Charles regularly helps Rosa with her texting game. (Amy tries to contribute at some point, but her offer to proofread messages is quickly shot down.) 
  • From her room, Amy hears the door slamming closed followed by the sound of muffled voices and giggling. She peaks her head out a bit, and her stomach lurches when she catches a blur of bodies making their way toward Jake’s room. She crashes at Kylie’s that night because the walls in their apartment are thin, and she doesn’t want to hear a thing. (It’s a drunken one night stand that doesn’t come to anything because the girl’s apparently in law school studying to be a defense attorney.) 
  • Charles and Rosa do yoga together on Sunday mornings. They try to get Jake and Amy into it, but Jake just makes a joke out of everything, and Amy becomes weirdly competitive about it. 
  • Jake once woke everyone up at an ungodly hour because he had been watching a nature documentary and yelling over the grossness of live births. He since then has been banned from watching nature documentaries past midnight. 
  • Every so often (more and more frequently as time passes), Jake and Amy find themselves sitting on the floor of their living room way past 2 am, just talking and laughing. (Charles and Rosa can hear them from their rooms, but neither of them say anything about it.)  
  • Through the wall between their rooms, Rosa can hear Amy creepily singing songs before each big test/evaluation at the academy. The third time this happens, Rosa knocks on Amy’s door and stays with her until she’s calmed down. (”You’ll do great. Stop stressing, dum-dum.”)
  • Jake runs out of shampoo and doesn’t want to dig through Charles’ erotic shampooing kit, so he sneaks into the girls’ bathroom and steals a bit from the first bottle he sees. (Turns out it’s Amy’s, and it drives him nuts that he smells like her the whole day. Amy somehow doesn’t notice, but Rosa threatens to castrate him if he ever enters their bathroom again.) 
  • Charles likes to blast show tunes while doing chores or cooking large meals (or doing anything, really). They’ve all had front row seats to his renditions of choice songs from Oliver, Annie, and Cats. 
  • Amy’s usually pretty neat, so Rosa is shocked to enter her room to find nuts all over the floor… and on her shirt, and in her hair, and somehow on her bed a few feet away. (”Jake said I couldn’t catch any of these with my mouth, so I’m just-” “Don’t care. Call me if you grab each other’s asses.”) 
  • Jake’s been thinking of asking Amy out for ages, but he’s too afraid of the potential fallout. Both Charles and Rosa try to talk him into doing something about his feelings.
  • Amy once catches Jake coming out of the shower with just a towel wrapped around his waist. Needless to say, all work was forgotten that evening, and she had to take a long shower herself. 
  • It’s during one of their 3 am heart-to-heart convos that Jake and Amy finally kiss, and they don’t end up sleeping until the sun starts to rise. When Amy comes out of Jake’s room close to lunch time (donning one of his checkered shirts, because her pajama top is nowhere to be found), she finds a spread of various aphrodisiacs (courtesy of Charles) and a box of condoms (courtesy of Rosa) on their dining table. 

Shout out to @peraltiagoisland, @elsaclack, @dogworldchampion, @stardustsantiago, and @tiadorable for letting me yell about this AU and helping me come up with these headcanons!!!!!!!!


The Ban

The recent travel ban by the president of United States have far reaching affect on the Muslim community living out side of the six banned nations. The Ban is a short documentary that sheds light on how Muslim individuals are affected by the travel ban living in Canada, specially in Vancouver.

Many have deemed this travel ban as xenophobic as it encourages discrimination against Muslims and promotes Islamophobia. The Ban, facilitated by Dr. Melek Ortabasi (SFU), interviews certain individuals who were affected by the ban. This video documentary gives them the platform for their stories to be heard. Furthermore, The Ban also includes prominent figures such as Vancouver based author and social activist Harsha Walia and Joy Kogawa, Canadian author and member of the Order of Canada. Joy has under went extreme racial discrimination during the Japanese internment in 1941.

The purpose of this video is to raise awareness and promote inclusivity of Muslim community in Canada. The take away message from this video is, as Joy Kogawa states near the end of video, “don’t let this happen again”, drawing a sharp comparison to the pitfalls of our modern history. This documentary calls for public attention to ban and helps demonstrate how such ruling negatively affects innocent Muslims living across the world.

Directed a video about a great group of artists I’m lucky to call my friends for @ray-ban. They call themselves Brockhampton.

brief details of the Nirbhaya case:

– a young aspiring doctor, Jyoti Singh, was brutally raped by four men

– she was returning home from watching life of pi with a male friend when they were both attacked on a bus

– when she fought back the rapists got angrier

– they decided to be more violent to ‘teach her a lesson’


– a policeman found the two people on the side of the highway and tried to help them until an ambulance arrived


– leslie udwin’s documentary India’s Daughter reveals the sick minds behind the rape.

– one rapist, Mukesh, DOES NOT REGRET WHAT HE DID. He doesn’t believe she should have been outside at 8PM

– one of the defence lawyers of the rapists have said 'india has the best culture. it DOES NOT HAVE any place for women' 

– the other said he would gladly LIGHT HIS SISTER OR DAUGHTER ON FIRE AT HIS FARMHOUSE if he thought they engaged in any pre-marital activities that he didn’t like

– the Indian government has BANNED the documentary saying that it is a conspiracy to defame India.

– the same government whose SITTING MINISTERS OF PARLIAMENT have multiple sexual abuse cases against them.


Watch on

WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS? EVERYONE and i do mean EVERYONE needs to watch this.

If you are shocked and appalled by the things the rapist and his lawyer say in this, I would like to let you know that this is the mentality of majority of Indian citizens.

Indian society is oppressive and is based primarily on SEXISM. On one hand, goddesses are worshiped and on the other hand, real live women are treated like worthless trash.

The government has banned this documentary because they think that it will “taint the image of India”. Indian culture is glorified to the point where it is considered sacred but that image is FALSE. THIS is the real India. THIS is the mentality the people of my country have and I am deeply ashamed.

If someone tells you that we dont need feminism, SHOW THEM THIS.


I was notified this week that the YouTube ban on my documentary ‘John Mayer: Someday I’ll Fly’ was lifted. I just wanted to say a huge thanks to those of you who decided to campaign for my documentary. Your voices definitely got heard.

I’m elated.


Watch, listen, share and enjoy!

Greece - The hidden war: Democracy will come a day

Today Greece is struggling again. This time against “financial occupation”, the so called “national debt problem”.

But what has happened almost 60 years ago in Greece? Is there an invisible line connecting the past foreign intervention in Greece with the policies followed today? A BBC banned documentary. Second part here

(anon) Hey I was wondering if you'd heard about the Gaybe Baby controversy. Basically Gaybe Baby is a documentary about what it is like growing up with gay parents, looking at notions of normalcy and conventional families. last wednesday (26/8), Adrian Piccoli (NSW education minister) BANNED screenings of the documentary in public schools across the state. The film was showing children that its ok and normal to have gay parents, and may have helped decrease classroom bullying. Had you heard?

I saw it on the news and could barely process my anger. They were going to screen it and when bigots didn’t like it they backed down and says it wasn’t part of the curriculum so it can’t be viewed.

Which is a great illustration of what is wrong with school curriculums. You can spend hours teaching kids to pass a test for a skill they will never use again, but god fucking forbid you teach them to be tolerant, to understand others and to empathise. Who needs those skills??
