It's an illegal workforce that's an internet connection and a phone call away. The world's oldest profession has moved online and indoors. We're going behind the supply and demand of the escort industry. Many are caught in an abusive underworld, while others fight for the freedom to simply work. This is the American escort industry. The Internet is the backbone of the 21st century sex industry. Prostitution is illegal in most of the United States, but if you look online countless websites appear to sell sex. You can have your pick of blonds, brunets, redheads, couples, strippers, party girls and of course escorts. The film crew basically wants to find out who these girls are and how this whole escort business operates.

The turmoil that has overtaken Hong Kong since its return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 has spawned a new generation of young, passionately committed activist filmmakers; they want to tell Hong Kong's story with Hong Kong voices. And the best indie documentary to have emerged so far from the HKSAR is this year's Yellowing, by Chan Tze Woon, a 29-year-old with degrees in policy studies and film production. Hong Kong's fraught, tense relationship with its mainland Chinese overseers came to a head with the Umbrella Movement of 2014. A crowd of protesters stormed Civic Square on September 27. The next day police shocked most residents of the HKSAR by attacking the growing crowds with volleys of tear gas, whereupon a wide cross section of Hong Kongers occupied the streets in several areas and stayed for almost 6 weeks. Chan took his camera on the streets for 67 days during these events.

Planes, tanks, bombs, assault rifles, media and propaganda – they were all weapons used in the Homeland War. However, it was the songs that were were louder than everything else. Some used them to describe the nightmare around them, others manifested their political loyalty. The national television and radio considered songs an important means of political “struggle”, so they commissioned, financed, recorded and aired them intensively. Even some twenty years after these events, the wartime soundtrack still draws attention and triggers emotions.
The "demonic design" of the US capital, set in stone was laid out by Master Masons in the shape of the ILLUMINATI (Luciferian) PYRAMID. Early on, these WARLOCKS OF WASHINGTON plotted to place their Satanic Symbols into the foundations of our society and gain control over America's banking system. The American public knows next to nothing about "those" shadowy Faustian figures who run and ruin this now Naziized Nation from the corporate boardrooms of the Major Banking Institutions. America today has essentially a ONE PARTY SYSTEM run by and for the benefit and pleasure of the International Banksters, who are sucking away the very sustenance of this once great nation. Their goal is to establish a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT upon the ashes of American sovereignty. Adolf Hitler wrote THE NEW WORLD ORDER. What's more frightening is that the political pimps and parasites along the Potomac who are doing the bankers' bidding are attempting to install it upon the wreckage of America.
