Argentina Indymedia Filmscreening
WHEN: Saturday, September 2nd, 4:00 pm
WHERE: Democracy Center, 45 Mt. Auburn Street, Harvard Square
Indymedia presents i a feature-length documentary produced by Raphael Lyon and Andres Ingoglia of Indymedia Argentina. i is a meditation on the relationship between media and power as it is manifested by the worlds largest all volunteer network of media activists Indymedia. The is 83-minute documentary follows the first year of a small collective in Buenos Aires as it struggles amidst assassinations, a collapsing economy, and a whirlwind of political upheaval.
According to Naomi Klein, i" positively vibrates with the energy and creativity of the movement it documents. Beautiful, intellectual, riotous, it fits in no box (and no blurb)just see it!
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 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. We are interested in engaging students, community activists, and independent media-makers in conversation about the role of local identity, communication, and network-building in todays social movements.
