About the movie:
“”” *We* is a fast-paced 64 minute documentary that covers the world politics of power, war, corporations, deception and exploitation.
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. “”” [SOURCE: http://www.weroy.org/ ]
Arundhati Roy (born November 24, 1961) is an Indian novelist, activist and a “world citizen”. She won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her first novel “The God of Small Things”.
“”” To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. (…) To call someone ‘anti-American’, indeed, to be anti-American, (or for that matter anti-Indian, or anti-Timbuktuan) is not just racist, it’s a failure of the imagination. An inability to see the world in terms other than those that the establishment has set out for you: If you’re not a Bushie you’re a Taliban. If you don’t love us, you hate us. If you’re not Good you’re Evil. If you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists.(…)Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.(…)Either way, change will come. It could be bloody, or it could be beautiful. It depends on us. (…) Today the world is run by three of the most secretive institutions in the world: The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization, all three of which, in turn, are dominated by the U.S. and Israel(from the shaddow).Their decisions are made in secret. The people who head them are appointed behind closed doors. Nobody really knows anything about them, their politics, their beliefs, their intentions. Nobody elected them. Nobody said they could make decisions on our behalf.(…)Israel’s staunchest political and military ally is and always has been the U.S. The U.S. government has blocked, along with Israel, almost every U.N. resolution that sought a peaceful, equitable solution to the conflict.(…)The term “anti-American” is usually used by the American establishment to discredit and, not falsely – but shall we say inaccurately – define its critics. Once someone is branded anti-American, the chances are that he or she will be judged before they are heard, and the argument will be lost in the welter of bruised national pride. “”‘[Arundhati Roy]
Testimonials about the movie:
“”” It is in my opinion a God given duty to spread the truth through which ever medium possible. The People must educate themselves not only to better understand the world about them but to support those truly in need. By not only creating and propagating this documentary (and of course making it free to be enjoyed by the masses).
My eyes have opened to a whole new world. I never realized that such horrors occurred during our lifetime. I guess I was just living in a bubble, and somehow knew something else was out there…just wasn’t sure what until now. I have already showed my husband the doc…and i will be sure to show all my friends… as I have alot that are aimless rebels looking for a good cause. Thank you, and I’m not sure where to take it from here…but something has certainly changed in me.
The film brought me to tears… grief is an under-rated thing in the American culture; main stream tv and movies have done a good job at desensitizing the general public to what really happens when a person we love dies. I know first hand. My only son, and the most important man in my life, died suddenly 2 years ago. […] It feels like someone reached in and ripped out my heart. Every morning I wake up and.. he is still dead. The person who came into my life and changed me forever… who loved me more than I had ever been loved before, the person I spent every day thinking about, caring about, loving, teaching and nurturing, for 19 years… Death doesn’t come and go, like changing channels on the tv.. or a birthday, or any event in our lives. Death comes, and it stays. It changes your life forever. You have to learn to live forever with a broken heart. This documentary and Arundhati’s words come closest to the truth about how an unnecessary death ruins people’s lives, how the deaths of countless innocent people we do not know on the other side of the world hurt so many people, and ruin so many lives. I could go on about so many other excellent points made in the film but won’t. I just want to thank you for putting this out here, props for acting selfless in a society overly saturated with selfishness. “”” [SOURCE: http://www.weroy.org/ ]
