Film Guide (with free films) – Part 5 – Protest Documentaries

A few years ago I used to run a biweekly free film showing in the University for anyone who wanted to come along. The films were a mix of documentaries, fiction and  based on true story stuff. I would try to get a guest along to speak too.

I thought I would make the list of films available here with links to where you can see them free where possible.

I’ve divided them into rough groups and posted links to where you can find them online if you want to. The first week I had some films about the media and the second was economics, the third was biographies and the fourth was some great anti-war films.

This time round we are looking at documentaries from various protests around the world…

Taking Liberties – This is of interest to anyone who has forgotten how bad the bLIAR was and the civil liberties he stripped away. Also of interest to people who want reminding of it and for people who enjoy gnashing their teeth.

Here is a link to the first part online and you can work your way through it.

The Miami Model – A remarkable film about the protests in Miami at the FTAA meeting and the policing of those protests.

It is online here. I wrote a review of it here. David Rovics wrote a song about it here.

The Fourth World War – This documentary takes a look at different struggles all around the world and shows how they are based around similar discontents.

The first part is here and you can work your way through.
