Documentary Visualizes Arundhati Roy's WordsFebruary 4, 2015
Director Scott Ewing is a filmmaker, political scientist, blogger, writer, editor, promo director, production assist and an artist based on Waiheke Island in New Zealand. Below is his description of the documentary made ten years ago in 2005.
"We is a fast-paced 64 minute documentary that covers the world politics of power, war, corporations, deception and exploitation. It visualizes the words of Arundhati Roy, specifically her famous Come September speech, where she spoke on such things as the war on terror, corporate globalization, justice and the growing civil unrest. It's witty, moving, alarming and quite a lesson in modern history. We is almost in the style of a continuous music video. The music used sets the pace and serves as wonderful background for the words of Ms. Roy and images of humanity in the world we live all in today."
