Sins Of Commission in West Hollywood International Film Festival

It’s official, SINS is in.

I would like to publicly say thank you to Martin Deluca the Director / Producer of the West Hollywood International Film Festival for having the courage to screen controversial films from around the world like ours.

Embrace the controversy! Revel in the process of Free Speech. This is Democracy! Use it or loose it as the saying goes.

Whether you agree with SINS OF COMMISSION or not is irrelevant to me as a filmmaker.

What is relevant to me, as a filmmaker, is that Americans are not stopped from being able to choose what to read, or watch.

KNBC reporter Cary Berglund asked the California Coastal Commission’s lawyer [Christina Bull Arndt] in the Attorney General’s Office, (because that’s who defends the Triple C -to the tune of $2 Billion a year…is that right?) why they want a copy of the film.

The assistant A.G said that it is “discovery”, and that the commission is casting a “wide net for information.”

I know how tough things are in California financially right now so rather than burden the state with more costs, I’d like to offer to buy a ticket for Attorney General Edmund Brown Jr. Unfortunately, sir, you would have to provide your own transportation.  I know, with the recent gas tax hike it is kind of expensive but it maybe more cost effective in the long run.. Can you cover your own parking?

Governor Schwarzenegger has a place in Malibu, maybe you can crash there and save the people the cost of a hotel. Come to think of it, I’ll spring for two tickets - Arnie can go too…call it a guys night out kind of thing.

SINS OF COMMISSION - KNBC Los Angeles 6 O’clock News

SINS OF COMMISSION, the documentary film expose of the California Coastal Commission broke into the mainstream news.

The documentary film expose of the secretive commission aired at the top of the hour in the number 2 television market in the US.

A subphoena for a work print of the film has been issued by the commission and Richard Oshen, the filmmaker plans to vigorously defend wht he calls ” a blatant attempt” by the commission to silence the film.

No matter what the commission says regarding their demand for the film… the commission’s history, revealed for the first time in SINS OF COMMISSION,  clearly shows how the California Coastal Commission obscures their real motives and objectives.

They simply want the film blocked, and will go to any length to accomplish their goal - eiven if it means violating the 1st amendment of the US Constitution to do it.

California Coastal Commission expose - KNBC-TV 6PM- Tonight

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

SINS OF COMMISSION filmmaker Richard Oshen talks to the camera tonight 6pm KNBC, Los Angeles TV 4.

People in California need to know the real story, from both sides…what is going on right now, in their name - and what has been going on for decades. 

Richard Oshen, SINS OF COMMISSION, filmmaker

The televised interview follows hot on the heels of a this morning’s interview with Doug McIntyre on KABC 790 AM  TALK RADIO.

It seems to me that the people, all the people need to revisit the California Coastal Commission, which they have not done in over 30 years to see how it can to be restored to “fairness and balance”, a cornerstone of the Coastal Act and our system of government. 

The people can’t do this as it now stands because of the way the commision has been isolated from the electoral process… and…the legislature seems to be unwilling to step in.

Richard Oshen, SINS OF COMMISSION, filmmaker
