Current Projects

Hitler’s Jewish Prophet
In association with ZED, France and Áhkku Vision, Finland

​​The strange but true story of “Hitler’s Psychic”, Erik Jan Hanussen, who assisted the Nazis' rise to power while keeping his Jewish identity secret.


The occultist was murdered in March 1933 soon after he predicted the infamous Reichstag fire which was used to justify Hitler’s assumption of dictatorial powers.


Hanussen’s death at the hands of Storm troopers in Berlin as well as his prominent role promoting the bizarre ”magical thinking” behind Nazi ideology became a taboo topic and disappeared into the mists of history… until now.


Did a Nobel Peace Prize-winning arms control agency yield to political pressure and lie about poison gas attacks in Syria to justify Western military intervention?

For three decades, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has worked to eliminate the scourge of chemical weapons. But whistleblowers have emerged and this lauded organization is now mired in an ugly scandal which questions the impartiality of its activities and the political loyalties of top officials.

An explosive investigation into a story the media has refused to cover.

​How does the past live in the present?

Carlo, a young gang member decides to leave his life on the streets to investigate the high-profile police killing of his great-grandfather, a Black WWII veteran, in the suburbs of New York in 1946.

The shooting of a Black soldier in uniform prompted public protests and a Grand Jury investigation but the police officer responsible was never charged. The case was swept under the carpet and forgotten. 

Carlo’s journey of self-healing forces him to

confront the traumas and the roots of American racism.

Origins of the Pandemic
In association with ZED France

Did the COVID-19 pandemic occur naturally or is it the result of something that leaked from a laboratory?

The “lab origin” hypothesis, once maligned as a conspiracy theory, is now taken seriously by many scientists thanks, in large part, to a group of skeptical virologists, molecular biologists and other “scientist detectives” uncovering clues about the virus.Their mission has been derided by powerful political and economic interests. And their reputations are on the line. But they persevere.

A scientific detective story for our troubled times.
