Wilders honored with leading role in American documentary
On May 1 in Los Angeles Geert Wilders will attend the premiere of a film made about him. This is what the PVV leader made public on Monday. The documentary, about one hour long, is on the advance of Islam, which is at the expense of our freedom, according to him.
The film, entitled “Islam Rising: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West”, was created by the American production company PRB Films, in collaboration with the Christian Action Network. Wilders finds it “quite an honor “that a film has been made about him. He has already has seen some parts of it. There was nothing wrong with those parts, the politician said: “It is my message.’’
The documentary makers have interviewed Wilders, but also make use of many images of speeches he has given, as well as TV interviews.
The trailer includes references to Fitna, the anti-Koran film made by Wilders and published on the Internet in March 2008. Fitna, according to him, was meant to highlight the dangers of the Koran and Islamic ideology. Wilders announced earlier that he would make a sequel, but he will not be able to finish it before the national elections in June. In Fitna 2 he wants to show the consequences of mass immigration from Muslim countries.
This is the trailer for Islam Rising:

Commenter TR points out that the Dutch MSM is taking the opportunity to play “gotcha!” with Geert Wilders for associating himself with homophobic Christians. As TR says, “When Wilders works with Christians, he is ‘anti-gay’. When leftists cuddle up to Islamic militants who want to kill or expel gays, they are ‘tolerant’.”

Anti gay rights group makes pro-Wilders film
Anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders is to travel to the US to attend the premier of a film about him, even though the film was made together with a conservative anti-gay American Christian group.
Wilders, who has made support for gay rights a central part of his anti-Islam message, says on his website it is a ‘real honour’ that a film has been made about him.
The film is titled Islam Rising: Geert Wilders Warning to the West, and was made by small-time production company PRB Films, together with Christian Action Network.
CAN, which claims to operate along Biblical principles, mainly campaigns against Islam. But it also takes action against same sex marriage and abortion and what it calls anti-Christian art.
‘I totally disagree with them about this [gay marriage],’ Wilders was quoted as saying by the Pers. ‘But they can make a film about me.’
Wilders claimed last year that several professional US film makers had offered their help in making a follow up to his 2008 anti-Islam video compilation Fitna.
