LOS ANGELES, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative visionary, John Schofield, who produced Academy Award-winning films such as Jerry Maguire, As Good As It Gets, and Ali, has produced the must-see documentary of 2012, Top Priority: The Terror Within (www.topprioritymovie.com), which is premiering at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on May 16, 2012.
Top Priority: The Terror Within, a documentary film by Fleur De Lis Film Studios, features the story of Julia Davis, a former federal officer of the Department of Homeland Security, who was falsely accused of being a domestic terrorist. Julia fought and prevailed as a whistleblower, in spite of insurmountable odds. She now untangles the web of secrets, divulging the untold series of events that were never supposed to reach media outlets. This groundbreaking documentary investigates issues that have ignited controversy within our nation, like the USA Patriot Act, and illegal and unethical tactics that are improperly used against law-abiding Americans. The authenticity of this documentary questions our national security processes and ultimately civil and women's rights. Top Priority: The Terror Within is slated to be the most widely recognized historical documentary of the year.
On July 4, 2004, Julia Davis reported a national security breach at the largest land border crossing in the U.S. and the world, of which the Department of Homeland Security failed to act on her reports. After hearing of highly suspicious entries of aliens from terrorist countries into the U.S. on July 4th of that year, the Department of Homeland Security opened a total of 54 investigations against Julia Davis, making her their top priority.
This stunning documentary, directed by Asif Akbar, exposes the anomalous degree of abuse under the guise of the PATRIOT Act in the case of Julia Davis. It details unprecedented retaliation by the Department of Homeland Security, perpetrated at the expense of American taxpayers, including land and aerial surveillance, wiretaps, OnStar tracking and other measures implemented against Julia and her family. Top Priority: The Terror Within contains actual footage of the Blackhawk helicopter/ Special Response Team raid of the Davis home, videotaped witness statements and extensive court records. After years of litigation, Julia Davis, vindicated, now speaks out informing the public of her epic phenomenon. She currently serves as a National Security/Anti-Terrorism Expert and legal expert witness in employment issues, alongside the most prominent truth-tellers with the National Whistleblowers Center in DC.
The premiere of Top Priority: The Terror Within will take place on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, CA.
