captures the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle. The film marks a turning point in collaborative filmmaking and acheives a scope and vision possible only through the lenses of over 100 cameras.

At the WTO protests in Seattle, we had a collective vision. We saw beyond the borders that divide us. We saw people come together across every kind of political and cultural difference. We saw peaceful protests shut down one of the most powerful institutions in the world. We saw a system dazed and frightened by the sound of our voices. "The documentary, like the protests, turns art into action"
~ Village Voice
