‘We‘ 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.
An amazing document, a lesson in modern history, given free by an anonymous producer. An unparalleled benchmark in documentary filmmaking. A wicked soundtrack. Powerful imagery. Arundhati Roy’s speech strikes to the heart, every word poiniently and poetically weaving an intricate tapestry of our modern global ache.
Geoff, the webmaster of resist.com.au, says he received the film anonymously in the mail one day with a simple note that read:
“Feel free to pass this on to others who you know will be interested in its relatively unique content and perspectives (either by copying this DVD, dubbing to VHS, by dissemination through internet download, holding private screenings etc). Using the technology of this information age you have the freedom to be as imaginative as you like in the different ways which you can choose to make this accessible to others.”
