(2008, 60 minutes, video)

Filmed over the course of three trips to Iraq as an independent videographer, this is a documentary not about soldiers, not about governments, but about Iraqi civilians and a handful of independent journalists in a country being turned into hell. A cinema verite narrative of daily life, disintegration, and the humor that ordinary people adapt when living in a warzone.

Event Description:

As part of its monthly film series, Houston Indymedia will screen "Ground Noise and Static: Free Speech Under Attack at the RNC" at 7:00pm Saturday, December 6th at Rice Cinema.

This documentary, by subMedia TV and PepperSpray Productions, is a 30 minute video report on the demonstrations that were held outside the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The filmmakers went there not to report on either party's convention, but to cover the creative actions that were taking place outside which the corporate media would all but ignore. The film contains from-the-streets footage capturing protests from both conventions, and arrests made at the RNC. "Don't be diverted by the ground noise and static..." is the phrase John McCain used to dismiss the protesters who shouted out during his acceptance speech.

Oct 15 2008 - 10:00pm

Event Description:

Again this election year, the Progressive Action Alliance is hosting a debate watch party for the last presidential "debate"/candidate Q&A.

Our party may be a little different than others, and we hope more fun -- as we did previously, we encourage everyone to bring balled-up socks or other soft objects to throw at the screen whenever one of the candidates says something you don't like. We all enjoyed this in the past, and spontaneous, enthusiastic comments about the candidates are often uttered. Use your imagination to think of what people would say when McCain says some of his usual lines...
