Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.



The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwide marched against Monsanto in a global protest. There...ane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

The 46-year-old actor said his Hatter's springy mass of tangerine hair became a particularly important detail because of one of the suspected origins of the term 'mad as a hatter.' In the 18th and 19th centuries, mercury was used in the manufacture of felt, and when used in hats it could be absorbed through the skin and affect the brain. Hatters and mill workers often fell victim to mercury poisoning which, in Carroll's time, had an orange tint - hence Depp's interest in adding brushstrokes of that particular watercolor to his portrait. 'I think [the Mad Hatter] was poisoned - very, very poisoned,' Depp said."

Called Yaffle , after the Newfoundland term for an armload of fish or sticks, it offers an armload of knowledge. Think of it as an online dating service for the academic set, matching research needs with expertise.  As governments pour millions into research, universities are under increasing pressure to make their findings available to the folks who are footing the bill and to unleash their academic smarts on problems in the community. Such demand for knowledge-sharing is spawning new efforts to decipher academic material and place it in the hands of people who can put it to work. 'Our sole purpose in life is to make connections,' said Memorial's David Yetman, who got the Yaffle project up and running earlier this year. 'A lot of people are saying we give you all this money, what are you really doing that benefits our society?' The new website allows anyone to search for the university's latest findings on a given topic and to post a call for research help."
