expanding democracy / shrinking corporatism: a film series and fundraiser is brought to you by Rochester Indymedia and the Flying Squirrel Community Space. The series starts with the history and rise of the corporation (The Corporation), then how people in the Americas interpret and act on what they believe an expanded, participatory democracy looks like (Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas) and finally to the start of the global justice movement (anti-globalization movement) in North America through the lenses of over 100 media activists (This Is What Democracy Looks Like) working with the Independent Media Center to showcase what was really happening on the streets of Seattle, WA in 1999 when activists and organizers from around the country came to shut down the World Trade Organization.
Descriptions of films:
Friday, Dec. 6, 6:30PM – 9:00PM:
The Corporation: Provoking, witty, stylish and sweepingly informative, THE CORPORATION explores the nature and spectacular rise of the dominant institution of our time. Part film and part movement, The Corporation is transforming audiences and dazzling critics with its insightful and compelling analysis. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” The Corporation includes interviews with 40 corporate insiders and critics – including Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn, Vandana Shiva and Michael Moore – plus true confessions, case studies and strategies for change.
Saturday, Dec. 7, 3:00PM – 5:30PM (also Noam Chomsky’s birthday):
Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas:
From Venezuela’s Communal Councils, to Brazil’s Participatory Budgeting; from Constitutional Assemblies to grassroots movements, recuperated factories to cooperatives across the hemisphere – this documentary is a journey which takes us across the Americas, to attempt to answer one of the most important questions of our time: What is Democracy?
Sunday, Dec. 8, 3:00PM – 5:30PM:
This Is What Democracy Looks Like: Cut from the footage of over 100 media activists, This is What Democracy Looks Like captures the historic events of the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle. The film marks a turning point in collaborative filmmaking and achieves a scope and vision possible only through the lenses of over 100 cameras.
