Moderated by Ray Pride (filmmaker and contributor to Newcity). From Moveon.org’s “Bush in 30 Seconds” contest to the $100-million-plus success of Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11,” political filmmaking and media activism has never held such possibilities, nor been as popular. Join in a lively discussion about the potential of political activism through film, video and new media. Panelists include Esther Bell (EXIST, director of the Un-American Film Festival), Danny Schecter (WMD: WEAPONS OF MASS DECEPTION), Bill Siegel (THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND), representatives of Chicago Indymedia and others.
Panels are free and open to the public
