>> Hello my translation friends.
>> My name is Raphael. For the past 4 years I have been working on a
>> documentary about the indymedia organization. Its title is simply "i"
>> Www.ithefilm.com
>> The goal of the film goal is to expose to a general public the ideas
>> about
>> decentralized organization, media independence and their connection to
>> horizontal social movements around the world. Together with my partner
>> Andres who is from Argentinan we documented the work of indymedia
>> Argentina
>> during the ongoing crisis and uprising of 2001. The indymedia Argentina
>> group is taken as an example amidst many groups working for media and
>> communicatory independence. Indymedia is seen in collaboration with
>> other
>> groups- but it is essentially a documentary about indymedia, its ideas
>> and
>> practice around the world.
>> Besides some great music it is also a poetic meditation on the meanings
>> of
>> these things, and has received encouragement from the likes of Chris
>> Marker
>> and Naomi Klein - who said: "³i² 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!"
>> Anyway our plans are to release it this summer and send a copy to every
>> indymedia in the world (free!) They can then use it to fundraise or to
>> simply have a video that explains some of the ideas and history behind
>> indymedia. We will be touring with the film in the US and Europe in the
>> Fall- elsewhere as we can raise money to do so. It has already been
>> excepted
>> in several festivals and I expect there to be a lot of excitement about
>> the
>> film when it is released.
>> We are working on the DVD right now.
>> We already have people working on translations for
>> Spanish
>> English
>> Dutch
>> German
>> French
>> Italian
>> Slovak
>> Czech (maybe)
>> However it is our hope to have as many languages available on the DVD as
>> possible- so we are asking that if you are interested in doing the
>> translation we would like to send you a copy of the movie and the
>> English
>> transcript.
>> The entire file is a text document with time code. All that is necessary
>> is
>> to remove the English phrases and replace them with the translation in
>> your
>> language. In fact this work can easily be broken up among a few people
>> working together. One person can work on the first half, another person
>> on
>> the second. However we are in a rush. We need the work done by June 1st
>> at
>> the absolute latest. If you are interested please get in touch.
>> You can see the trailer and read more online here:

>> Please contact me with any questions directly.
>> Thank you.
