Liberty Film Festival Honors “Path to 9/11”

Los Angeles Times’ Patrick Goldstein previews this weekend’s Liberty Film Festival and concludes that it can be a breath of fresh air in a liberal town, even if he doesn’t agree with the rhetoric. He singles out a planned screening of the documentary “Suicide Killers,” a “chilling portrait of imprisoned suicide bombers,” by director Pierre Rebov. He also points to the festival’s website, Libertas, as one of the “few websites that actually takes movies — and their cultural influence — seriously.” One regular contributor, a filmmaker who goes by the name of “Dirty Harry,” is especially inflammatory, as he (or she) dismisses the upcoming “Blood Diamond” as “anti-American.” Opening night Friday at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood will feature short films by David Zucker and Joel Surnow, as well as the presentation of the Freedom of Expression Award to the team behind ABC’s “Path to 9/11.” Former Columbia Pictures chairman Frank Price, recently named by President Bush to the National Council for the Arts, presents the honor.
