In 2004, Corporal Martin Webster filmed some of his fellow British soldiers
beating Iraqi youths in Al Amarah. It was his commentary that people heard
when the film was leaked to the British newspaper, News of the World and was
shown across the globe. Despite no charges being brought against him,
Martin left the Army soon afterwards Diary of a Disgraced Soldier follows him
from the day he leaves the Army, on an intense journey that sees him struggle

is available to watch now and on Renderyard we are donating money raised from each
view the film gets to the Eastern Congo Initiative so start watching today.
In the brutal war in Congo where over five million people have died in the past decade,
children have endured the brunt of the suffering. "Children of Congo" documents the plight
of street children living in Kinshasa and confirms the wide-spread accusations of child witchcraft,
torture and child prostitution.
The film also examines the efforts to reintegrate demobilized child soldiers, displaced refugees,
and orphaned children following the eruption of the massive Nyiragongo volcano, near the city
of Goma in Eastern Congo. These heroic efforts are finally bringing some measure of hope and
stability to the lives of the Congolese people.
A very interesting and disturbing look at life that could be our near future. The frightening point
about this film, is this could happen. It has the feel of a condensed "1984". But "Your State"
brings that image right up to date and in your face. Mark Ashmore is a young actor, writer and
director and who also appears in his own film.
Mark has created an amazing realistic plot, with an excellent cast. The sound and lighting give
it that authentic perspective. Even the music complements the whole image. It makes me fear
just what could be around the corner. But I pray we can come to our senses, before we go a step to far.
"Your State". Well worth watching. Malcolm T Gould.
