Indymedia Newreal (October 2002) & “paint it Black: Anarchism, Urban Uprising & the Mainstream News Media”

2001, NR, 86 min. Directed by Jessica Lawless.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., Oct. 29, 2002

The October Newreal includes footage form a longshoremen rally in Seattle, antiwar demonstrations in San Francisco and Colorado Springs, preparations for the anti-FTAA demonstrations in Ecuador, and more. The 56-minute long "Paint It Black" by Jessica Lawless is a response to the corporate media's portrayal of anarchists after the 1999 Seattle WTO protests.
