Are we a nation financially addicted to war?

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Director Eugene Jarecki's documentary "Why We Fight," winner of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, continues at the Doris Duke Theatre with a screening this afternoon at 1.

Jarecki's look at America's military-industrial complex presents an old argument that the United States has become a nation whose economic survival depends on permawars using archival footage of events from World War II through 9/11, and interviews with such figures as Gore Vidal.

Whether you agree with Jarecki or not, "Why We Fight" is considered compelling filmmaking.

Home & Garden Television's highest-rated show is looking for Honolulu houses for a new series "National Open House" that compares housing markets in cities across the country.

Pietown Productions hopes to find homes worth $150,000, $250,000, $300,000, $500,000, $750,000 and $1 million. Prices should reflect the home's present worth. And the homes do not have to be for sale.

If you're selected, the company, which will be in town April 15-20, will need about a half day to shoot your episode.
