Bristol Indymedia Film Night: This Revolution

Monday 3rd December 8pm at the Cube Cinema Monday 3rd December 8pm at the Cube Cinema, Stokes Croft, Bristol. Entry £2/£3 (but nobody refused entry for a lack of funds.) As 2007 comes to a close, Bristol Indymedia Film Night presents the official Sundance selected 'This Revolution'. In 1969 Academy Award winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler exploded the boundaries of American cinema with Medium Cool, a film set against the backdrop of the 1968 democratic national convention. Thirty years later, as anti-Bush activists and the New York police force prepared for their encounter on the streets outside the 2004 Republican National Convention, director Stephen Marshall took his cast and crew, including stars Rosario Dawson and Nathan Crooker, into the chaos. The story follows Jake Cassevetes (Nathan Crooker), a network embedded journalist just back from Iraq who is assigned to cover the run-up to the RNC. When he meets and falls in love with Tina Santiago (Rosario Dawson), a young mother widowed after her husband was killed in Iraq, Jake is forced to question his world view. But it is not until he discovers his network has given his videotape of an anarchist Black Bloc group to Homeland Security that Jake decides to take action.
