30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle

A compelling first-person account by veteran cameraman Rustin Thompson, who covered the November 1999 WTO conference as an independent journalist. Thompson takes the viewer into the fray of tear gas, pepper spray and police abuse; behind the lines and inside the convention center and press rooms; and along the marches, sit-ins and demonstrations. The result is an impressionistic journal of a decisive week that exploded into a massive expression of freedom: of speech, of assembly and the press. 2000. 75 min. Related web sites:
