WE INTERRUPT THIS EMPIRE
(2003, 52 Min., US)
A film by Video Activist Network
What happens when a trigger-happy cowboy with a pocket full of loot
aims his guns on an oil-rich, people-poor nation?
We Interrupt This Empire... is a powerful look into the direct actions that shut down the
financial district of San Francisco on the day after the United States
invaded Iraq. With audio backdrop including the live radio
broadcasts from the Independent Media Center to SFPD's tactical
communications that were picked up on police scanners, the documentary
reveals a 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
(2002, 17 Min., Mexico)
A short film by Greg "Gringoyo" Berger
During the invasion of Iraq in the spring of 2003, a misplaced gringo in Mexico City helplessly watches the attrocities through the lens of Mexican television news. Taking a tip from his Mexico City neighbors, he begins to sell chewing gum and wash car windows in the streets of Mexico City...to raise money for a guerrilla army to take out Bush.
"Gringo-thon" is a personal expression of protest of an expatriate living abroad, and also a subtle meditation on the complexities of "gringo" identity in an American continent whose millions of inhabitants misunderstand each other.
