"Indymedia Presents" this week is a compilation of 5 short pieces which ends with the comical "Discs of Fury" question, "25,000 years of evolution leads to this?" The show starts with a short piece about the Mother's March in Washington DC of parents who lost their children in Iraq. It is set to "Michael's Gone to War" the song by local indy composer, Brian Kinsella. Filmed by Amy Flannary in Washington DC. Produced by Patricia Boiko and Winning Pictures, LLC. Then the show moves us with the award winning film, "Everything Upside Down". In this short film, courageous Jesuit University students from across the country commemorate the lives of the priests, nuns and local people slaughtered by trainees from the School of the Americas located in Fort Benning, Georgia. Seattle University students take us on their journey from Seattle to Fort Benning in their heartfelt effort to close down the terrorist training. The film was produced by Phil Duncan and Erin Foran. Next, is The Corporal's Boots another award winning film. "Some people have taken it as an antiwar statement; some people have taken it as a tribute and memorial to our fallen heroes." Recalling the subtle intensity of the Viet Nam memorial in Washington DC, this story of one soldier's boots in the national exhibit, "Eyes Wide Open", presents the inescapable wartime reality of lives lost and families wounded. A haunting, original score by local composer, Brian Kinsella and the hammerlock of raw emotion create a rare viewing experience. Produced by Patricia Boiko and Winning Pictures, LLC. The next film, "Zapped," transforms a doctor's heart stopping ordeal into visual poetry. It combines fireworks and human sacrifice into whimsical drama about a serious medical problem: atrial fibrillation. Set to the beat of the all-girl band, Smoosh, it is a grand display of BBQ'd doctor flesh. Poetry by Karl Weyrauch, MD used by permission from JAMA. Drums by Chloe. Produced by Patricia Boiko and Winning Pictures, LLC. Last is the comical, rapid paced "25,000 Years of Evolution Leads to This" with the musical performance of the Seattle Indy Band, Discs of Fury. The editing and artful of interspersion of footage from an East Africa chimpanzee expedition makes this one of Russian Documentary Filmmaker, Ester Schub's best work yet.
