FEATURING: CULTURE JAM: Hijacking Commercial Culture Globalisation and the Media CELL ART Anti-Ads

CULTURE JAM: Hijacking Commercial Culture - 57 minutes

This doco delivers a fascinating rap on the 20th Century movement called "Culture Jamming" - taking a look at a new breed of revolutionary that stands poised along our information highways waging war on logos and symbols: Culture Jammers. These pranksters and subversive artists are on a mission to artfully reclaim our mental environment by causing a bit of brand damage to corporate mindshare. Stopping over in San Francisco, NY and Toronto, we catch the jamming in action with likes of the Billboard Liberation Front, Disneyarch-enemy Reverend Billy from the Church of Stop Shopping Culture, cultural commentators, a billboard advertiser and a constitutional lawyer. CULTURE JAM asks: Is Culture Jamming civil disobedience? Senseless vandalism? The only form of self defence left? (As screened at the International Film Festival in Auckland 2002). Website

Globalisation and the Media - 21 mins.

Globalisation and the Media explores how the media is involved in shaping public opinion during the ‘War on Terrorism’ and Globalisation. It offers a wide range of viewpoints from broadcasters, journalists, computer hackers, media activists, and news editors. Travelling across the USA, Nigeria, Britain and Italy, it reports on the violent suppression of the alternative media. Discover how new technology, such as the internet and camcorders, is challenging the role of the traditional news gatherer. Made by UK alternative media network, Undercurrents .


Locally produced by Auckland artists, these adbuster style commentaries are a piss take on transnational companies in New Zealand, starting with Tranzrail (winner of this year’s Roger Awards) .These Disadvertisments are funny stuff.

This will be the second screening of 2003 presented by the Auckland crew from the Aotearoa Independent Media Centre (http:// http://www.indymedia.org.nz). One of our aims is to provide a regular public forum for political documentaries and media art ignored by the mainstream media.
