CBC NEWSWORLD is playing the movie
THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE
on The Passionate Eye
Apr 16, 2001
MONDAY, 10 pm EDT / repeats 1 AM EDT (10 pm in B.C.)
REVOLUTION THROUGH THE EYES OF 100 VIDEO CAMERAS.
'This is What Democracy Looks Like' weaves together gripping video from
100 cameras to tell the real story of what happened in the streets of Seattle
during the 1999 World Trade Organization (WTO) protests. With more cameras
on the street than any other media organization, the Independent
Media Center (IMC) coordinated hundreds of media activists and collected
more than 300 hours of video footage during the WTO protests.
The film cuts through the confusion and tear gas to paint an
intimate, passionate portrait of a week that changed the world.
This is What Democracy Looks Like captures the raw energy of the
WTO protests, while clarifying their global and historic significance.
"In the weeks leading up to the WTO protest there was this sense that
Seattle was going to be huge," says co-director Jill Freidberg, "and
we knew we couldn't count on the corporate media to accurately
represent the events of the week or the issues at stake.
So, the Independent Media Center was created to provide a media
production infrastructure though which 100s of media activists could
offer different perspectives on the events of the week, using satellite
broadcasts and the internet to disseminate print, audio, and
video journalism around the world."
This is What Democracy Looks Like is produced by
Independent Media Center and Big Noise Film.
