We Interrupt This Empire... screens Oct 9th at 7.30pm at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
What happens when a trigger-happy cowboy with a pocket full of loot aims his guns on an oil-rich, people-poor nation?
The San Francisco Video Activists' Network presents the story you won't see on Fox News: an eye-popping, jaw-dropping look at the Bay Area's radical resistance to an illegal war. Guest speakers and the filmmakers will attend the screenings for a question and answer session after the show.
"We Interrupt This Empire..." is a collaborative work by many of the Bay Area's independent video activists which documents the direct actions that shut down the financial district of San Francisco in the weeks following the United States' invasion of Iraq. With the audio backdrop including the live broadcasts of Enemy Combatant Radio from the SF Independent Media Center to SFPD's tactical communications that were picked up by police scanners, the documentary takes a look at the diverse show of resistance from the streets of San Francisco as well as providing a critique of the corporate media coverage of the war and exploring such issues as the Military Industrial Complex, attack on civil liberties, and the United States' current imperialist drive.
