Cinematic protest against Bush's visit
Kochi, Mar 2 (UNI) A novel cinematic protest will get under way here tomorrow against the ongoing visit of US President George Bush.
A total of 12 documentaries, made by filmmakers from different parts of the world, will be screened at the three-day film festival, starting at the Darbar Hall Ground.
The festival, organised by a local cultural organisation, 'Tarangam Samskarika Vedi,' would be inaugurated by well-known Malayalam cine actor Murali.
Among the films to be screened at the event will be 'Breaking The Silence,' 'America America,' 'We Interrupt the Empire,' 'Colour and Anthem,' 'Stop Killing My Kids' and 'Battle's Poison Cloud - Vietnam War.' In a statement here today, convener of the event C R Neelkanthan said the films were being screened to highlight the continuing saga of aggressive US imperialist policies against the nations of the world, be it Vietnam, Iraq and now Iran.
While the Indian government had rolled out the red carpet for Mr Bush, the ordinary people of the country were not happy at the visit, he said.
