Premiere of the full-length film, narrated by Susan Sarandon & Michael 
Franti, documenting the meaning & events of the Seattle protests. 

Why did so many youth, labour leaders, human rights activists, 
anti-capitalists, developing world activists, intellectuals, raging grannies, 
and other concerned individuals come together? 

Through extensive on-the-ground footage, the film also aims to give 
an accurate picture of exactly what happened on the streets. 

"With beautiful graphics, a passionate narrative, and stunning writing, 
it is a powerful embodiment of the spirit of the protests." - Naomi  Klein. 
Simultaneous showings in numerous cities throughout North America. 

Each Ottawa screening will include a speaker who will introduce the film. 
A discussion will follow the screening, taking a critical look at the film,

meetings in Quebec City.
