'We' is an anonymously-made film using the words of Arundhati Roy in her famous Come September speech, visualising her words through archived footage and music.
64 mins - Anon, New Zealand
It 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.
It's witty, moving, alarming and quite a lesson in modern history.
We is a completely free documentary, created and released anonymously on the internet.
About The Film
"This is an unusual kind of underground production. An anonymous sympathiser has edited a video recording of Roy’s speech over 64 minutes, interspersing an impressive array of archival footage to illustrate themes and specific historical events. Contemporary music overlaid throughout the piece shifts the mood and quickens the pace. The result is a visual essay rather than a traditional documentary, perfectly suited to its creator’s intentions, which is to spread the anti-imperialist, social justice politics of Arundhati Roy everywhere."
"We" is a free documentary produced by an anonymous producer in New Zealand. He goes by the name “anon”. It was released for free on the Internet and first appeared at an Australian web site called resist.com.au.
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.
After seeing the film, we felt it was very important, cool, and overall just fantastic piece of work. So a couple months ago, weroy.org was created to assist the efforts that others put forth in getting this free documentary seen by the citizens of the world.
