'THE FOURTH WORLD WAR' comes to California

While American airwaves are crowded with talk of a new war – narrated by generals and filmed from the noses of bombs – the human face of war is rarely seen. THE FOURTH WORLD WAR is a powerful new film from the makers of 'This Is What Democracy Looks Like', 'Zapatista', and 'Black & Gold'. It weaves together the stories of movements against empire from Palestine, Iraq, Chiapas, Argentina, South Africa, South Korea to Quebec City and Genoa.

The product of over two years of filming, The Fourth World War is a new kind of film for a new world. The intensity and immediacy of its images are beyond anything the mainstream media can shoot, the intimacy and passion of its stories are beyond anything it can feel. Directed by the award winning New York-based Big Noise Films, and narrated by Tony Award winner Suheir Hammad and Singer Michael Franti of Spearhead, it is a radical story of hope and human connection in the face of a war that shatters and divides.

"I think THE FOURTH WORLD WAR should be the center-piece of all political education for left activists in the present period. It really is that good."

“A powerful, radical cry from the frontlines of the war on people. This film captures the spirit of resistance: it is as beautiful and global as humanity itself.?
-Naomi Klein, author of No Logo

“an affirmation of shared humanity in defiance of nationalism.?
-The Village Voice

"I cried the first time I watched 4WW. And in the second viewing I cried even more. . . The 4th World War is a masterpiece. . . it explodes with the breadth and intensity of a global movement that was almost unimaginable ten years ago."
-- R.J. Maccani, Left Turn Magazine

"Deep. . . Beautiful. . . Complex and full of both hope and despair. . . Allows us to glimpse a way out of - or through - the pain. Together."
-- Ramona DeNies, Portland Mercury

“Inspirational. Essential. THE FOURTH WORLD WAR documents the history of the future before it is born. . . and while we can still do something about it.?
-Peter Wintonick, Internatonal Editor, POV (Point-of-View Magazine)

Re: 'THE FOURTH WORLD WAR' comes to California

This film set the minds of South African Youth on the battlefield they thought they had averted. The generation which could not identify its enermy has been thrust right into the pits of that awareness.
The bloodied metal gonads of the monster in the various names of god is feeling the black flames of dissent.

Re: 'THE FOURTH WORLD WAR' comes to California

the point however is to scrap the war machine amongst peoples not to engrandize it. i agree with anti-war shows and although i hope this show the fourth world war contientiously distructs the imperialist war feever gripping the u.s.-- german whorship of war machines and their false glorification of destruction rather than working class solidarity i do think it would be timely if it exposes imperialist lies everywhere. peace equals disarmament.
