Frank Lopez Presents Submedia and Lost Film Festival: Guerilla Media Screening with “Ground Noise and Static”

December 3, 2008 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm EST

Video and web artist and all-around culture jammer Frank Lopez of subMedia.TV visits us from Vancouver, BC!  His work includes the post- Katrina music video George Bush Don’t Like Black People (downloaded over one million times and counting) and the vlog It’s the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine (which highlighted the Wafaa Bilal incident last spring).  He’ll be presenting Ground Noise & Static, a powerful documentary filmed in the midst of the protests at last summer’s 2008 political conventions.

Ground Noise & Static is a joint effort of Franklin López of subMedia.TV and
PepperSpray Productions.

About Ground Noise & Static

In November, one or the other of the corporate candidates will
win, and then, as always, it will be what the people do, not the
politicians, that counts.

Ground Noise & Static is a video report on the protests that occurred in connection with the Democrat and Republican National Conventions, Ground Noise & Static is a manifesto. We went to Denver and St. Paul to take the pulse of the movement. Corporate media would cover the platitudes and posturing of the politicians, we were interested in something else, a story hidden in plain sight, captured in the now-classic street chant, “This is what democracy looks like.”
