Saturday, January 7: This Is What Democracy Looks Like

1999 Seattle protests that shut down the meeting of the WTO. People left Seattle energized, believing that they had taken part in the birth of a new movement. More than a film, THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE is a mobilizing campaign. The same grassroots network that celebrated victory in Seattle is collaborating to bring THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE to communities all over the world and mobilizing activists to initiate a dialogue about new ways to organize across our differences.

Saturday, January 14: Breaking The Bank

Breaking The Bank is a remarkable independent account of the April 2000 protests against the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank. Drawing on the hard work of eight activist production groups and scores of volunteer videographers, this 74-minute documentary is filled with dramatic, inspiring footage from the streets of DC. Scenes of confrontation and harassment the police are intercut with the protests, puppets, and the passionate actions of thousands upon thousands of protestors.

Saturday, January 21: War & Peace Trilogy

In Independent media in a time of war, journalist and host of Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman, criticizes the pro-military bias of the mainstream news media, whose reportage of the U.S. invasion of Iraq downplays or ignores the impact on civilians while overstating the success of U.S. military operations. Voices against war chronicles the experiences of people on the streets of Manhattan who participate in a Feb. 2003 protest against the war in Iraq. Womens' fast for peace examines the case of 125 women in upstate New York who, on the eve of the Iraq War, fasted to create a culture of peace rather than of war.

Saturday. January 28: The Panama deception

The Panama Deception documents the untold story of the December 1989 U.S. Invasion of Panama; the events which led to it, the excessive force used, the enormity of the death and destruction, and the devastating aftermath. The Panama Deception uncovers the real reasons for this internationally condemned attack, presenting a view of the invasion which widely differs from that portrayed by the U.S. media. The Panama Deception exposes how the U.S. government and the mainstream media suppressed information about this foreign policy disaster.
