On October 15 will manifest more than fifteen countries. Each externalize their own struggles. All conflicts are bound within the global system, so we are affected in a directly and indirectly way. Examples: U.S. financial corruption, Chile cuts to education, Brazil environmental damage, Canada lobbies influence in politics, Spain housing problem, Ecuador media manipulation, etc.. We are facing a global crisis. As responsible for the present fate of a failed system, we must face our problems in a unified way.
The proposal is to create a documentary piece collective, non-profit, lasting about eight minutes, and inquire about the real motive of the uprising at each point in the world. It is an initiative to create networks and core content for future work. The struggle is global: the project aims to include sequences of events at different points of protest.
The aim is to invite to partake in an active way, to the global fight through a singular sequence within a collective short-film. The project acclaims the message through your knowledge, sensitivity and resources. The beauty of the piece is to find the riches of freedom and individuality in terms of their form of recreation. Ex; slow cameras, music, off-screen, etc… I
t will be shown on the following platforms: vimeo.com, youtube.com.
Theaim is to have the widest possible distribution through magazines, pages, blogs, social networks, etc.. The idea is to create a discourse that includes a global message from the local, with no pretensions to go beyond an appeal.
