I've reserved space to show the film below @ Encuentro 5 in Chinatown on Sept. 2nd at 7:00 pm. I'll be forwarding a couple of you the Indymedia poster soon to see if there's any chance we could print a few copies before the event...
The space's free (because it's a Saturday). No alcohol can be served.
See below a press release for the event (not sure if the producers are coming). What else do you think we can do for that day?

According to Naomi Klein, i" positively vibrates with the energy and
creativity of the movement it documents. Beautiful, intellectual,

Produced and directed by independent filmmakers Raphael Lyon and
Andres Ingoglia, i builds on a documentary short they made about
Argentina called Eye of the Storm. i focuses in on the particular role that role that grassroots media production played during this time of crisis and upheaval. The films structure and production are also an
embodiment of this media model: Footage was shot with mostly consumer
equipment, includes clips from many grassroots reports including several produced out of the NYC Independent Media Center, and much of the editing work took place at the NYC-IMC.

Lyon and Ingoglia will attend this special pre-tour engagement,
and they extend a special invitation to independent media makers and
activists to stay afterward for a discussion of the film and its distribution strategy. A screening tour, to launch this fall and extend into the spring, will engage students, community activists, and
independent media-makers in conversation about the role of local identity, communication, and network-building in todays social movements.
