    from iamkoshur Added 2,973 3 1

    It’s 15th August, India’s Independence day, and the Indian flag ritually goes up at Lal Chowk in the heart of Srinagar, Kashmir. The normally bustling square is eerily empty– a handful of soldiers on parade, some more guarding them, and except for the attendant media crews, no Kashmiris.pigeons. For more than a decade, such sullen acts of protest have marked 15th August in Kashmir, and this is the point from where Jashn-e-Azadi begins to explore the many meanings of Freedom–of Azadi–in Kashmir.

      from Gary Hunt Added 38 0 0

      Behind Enemy Lines - http://www.outpost-of-freedom.com/radio/bel/ What was the significance of Colonel Travis drawing a line in the sand at the Alamo with his saber? Is it possible to know ahead of time what abuses of government you will and will not tolerate? Are public pronouncements only an expression of bravado and is it quite possible that the line in the sand concept is just a fabrication? Some topics that were broached, during this very diverse conversation, were the viability of street protests, sensationalistic civil disobedience, people who have taken an oath and claim they will keep it, militia mutual defense pacts, the 2012 presidential campaign, Sandy Hook, and the Free State Project.

              Observaciones Sobre los Colores consists of a single video projection in which a boy reads a Spanish translation of Wittgenstein's Remarks on Color, Part 1 (1951), consisting of 88 segments, in real time over a period of 78 minutes. Hill provided a modified version of the book with all proper names, philosophical terms and scientific language replaced with phonetically spelled versions. A reaction to Goethe's Theory of Colors (1810), Wittgenstein's Remarks on Color remains famously impenetrable on account of its complex fragmentation; despite great effort, the boy's reading is laboriously staggered and uncomprehending. Unable to comfortably understand the auditory content, one's attention shifts to the visual: a young boy with black hair clothed in a yellow shirt reading from a white book, superimposed against archival footage produced by the non-governmental association Active Citizenship documenting the 2002 Venezuelan protests directly against the government of President Hugo Chavez.

Also - this video starts about 10 minutes into the training, but hopefully he went back & covered any info missed at the beginning.

                • Travels With Claude

                  Travels with Claude (1995) -The music and ideas of folk singer Robert Hoyt In his fourth full length film, Paul Bonesteel documented Earth Week 1995, profiling folk singer and environmental activist, Robert Hoyt. In a journey that takes Robert and his orange tabby, Claude, from Chicago to Detroit and many points in between, Travels with Claude chronicles the music, ideas and environmental philosophies that make Robert an unabashed troubadour. Including music from his first two releases, As American As You and Dumpster Diving Across America, Robert’s political satire, aggressive activism, involvement in Earth First! and his unique lifestyle all collide during the week surrounding the twenty-fifth anniversary of Earth Day 1970 and the Oklahoma City Bombing. What results is a true “state of the planet” expression that captures the radical and heartfelt sentiments of a changing activism in the 1990s. The film takes the viewers from Hoyt’s ‘pulpit’ in the front seat of his truck to a midwestern scene of protests and dumpster diving, eventually culminating in Tyree Guyton's folk art landscape of the Heidelberg Project of downtown Detroit. “Let’s just say that it was feasible to take a spaceship to another planet somewhere, seriously folks…do you think you’d have a ticket? Let’s get real here.” -Robert Hoyt Director’s thoughts from 2014 Looking at this film from today’s perspective I found it curious in many ways. Robert’s journey is a universal one; a restless dreamer, a poet with a guitar seeking to change the world. Beyond that, the politics of the 1980’s had left a generation trying to exert forces on the political and corporate powers of the time, but lacking the widespread support to effect change. The fact that we are still wrestling with the issues highlighted in the film and in Robert’s songs is a testament to both his timeliness and timelessness (along with the fact that we’re painfully slow in solving problems). What I have enjoyed in revisiting the film is how Robert’s personality is captured to show his complex nature; how he is simultaneously an activist, a musician and a struggling human seeking clarity. How this character sketch evolves for the viewer is probably the thing I’m most happy about. I have not kept up with Robert since 1999. Last I heard, he was living in the midwest somewhere, and was a husband and father, playing only the occasional gig now and then. Technically, in 1994, I was shooting cinema verite films like this on a small budget and that meant using a high 8mm video camera and super 8mm film. Small video cameras have come light years since then, but, that said, these were the tools I had to tell the story and are as much a sign of the times as the $1.19 per gallon price of gas on the gas pump. I hope you enjoy Travels With Claude. -Paul
