Is What Democracy Looks Like, a co-production of the IMC and Big Noise
Films, weaves the footage of over 100 videographers into a gripping
document of what really happened on Seattle’s streets. The film cuts
through the confusion and tear gas to paint an intimate, passionate
portrait of a week that changed the world.With narration by SUSAN
SARANDON and SPEARHEAD's MICHAEL FRANTI, and with a driving soundtrack
including RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, DJ SHADOW, DJ MUSAKA, and COMPANY
OF PROPHETS, This Is What Democracy Looks Like is the first documentary
to capture the raw energy of the WTO protests, while clarifying their
global and historic significance.
The Independent Media Center
provided a production infrastructure for over 450 media activists
during the WTO protests in November 1999. With autonomous,
volunteer-run media centers operating in four continents, ten countries
and twenty-one cities, the IMC represents a new and powerful emerging
model for independent media.
"The IMC isn't waiting for the old
guard media to tell the true story. . . the IMC is simply doing the job
itself, reporting directly form the front lines." Naomi Klein, author
