|Principle Over Politics|

Not Evil Just Wrong is not a political film. It is a principled film whose mission is not only to expose global warming hysteria but also to tell the story of how environmentalists won a ban on the pesticide DDT and in the process sentenced millions of poor children to death by malaria.
That's the message Phelim and Ann shared in an interview with Big Hollywood.
People may be tempted to pigeonhole the film as conservative because it challenges Al Gore's orthodoxy on global warming, but Phelim called Not Evil Just Wrong "a liberal, socialist film. It's about poor people in Africa and America" because that's what liberals and socialists say they care about.
The movie connects the environmental dots between the DDT scare of the past and the global warming fear-mongering of the present. "Co2 is the new DDT," Phelim told Big Hollywood. "They're demonizing it the same way."
The truly political movie about global warming is Gore's documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. The British High Court said so in a ruling that identified factual errors in the film and that requires schools to include a warning if they show the movie to students.
Ann noted that U.S. audiences that have screened the Not Evil Just Wrong, which premieres Oct. 18, are outraged when they learn about the court ruling from the film. U.S. media outlets ignored the news. "That's a story worth reporting, and it's worth asking Al Gore about," Ann said.
Readers of Big Hollywood, a group blog that examines culture and politics from a decidedly non-Hollywood perspective, are an ideal audience for Phelim and Ann's film, who will be bypassing Hollywood to take their message directly into people's homes on premiere night.
