we, the unauthorised

There's a film out there that is spreading like wildfire across the internet. The film takes difficult geo-political subject matter and makes them accessible - especially to a youthful audience. To give credit to the web site which has been promoting this film, I have copied the following words and links from their site:

We is a fast-paced 64 minute documentary that covers the world politics of power, war, corporations, deception and exploitation.

It visualizes the words of Arundhati Roy, specifically her famous Come September speech, where she spoke on such things as the war on terror, corporate globalization, justice and the growing civil unrest. Witty, moving, alarming and quite a lesson in history.

We is almost in the style of a music video, featuring the contemporary music of Lush, Curve, Love & Rockets, Boards of Canada, Nine Inch Nails, Dead Can Dance, Amon Tobin, Massive Attack, Totoise, Telepop, Placebo and Faithless. The music serves as wonderful background for the words of Ms. Roy and images of humanity in the world we live all in today.

We is a completely free documentary, created (and released) anonymously. There are many ways to download and view it.

You can watch a low-res 12 min clip of the film here - this clip displays a number of excellent web site addresses at the end:

The time has come, the Walrus said
Maybe things will become worse,
then better.
