FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August 6, 2007
Bicyclists vs. the IMF/World Bank - Caravan/Prague Coming to DVD August
A bicycle caravan -- with the theme, "Money or Life" -- travels 500
miles across Europe to join protests in Prague against the
International Monetary Fund and World Bank. The goal is to create a
mobile utopian community which will be a living counter-example to the
values of these powerful financial institutions. The landscape is
beautiful, and bicycles possess their own poetry. But it's not always
easy functioning without money. The authorities have their own ideas
about policing the intersection of utopia and everyday life. And then
there's the matter of shutting down the IMF/World Bank meeting...
Caravan/Prague, a feature-length documentary, is a first-hand account
of this journey to the historic 2000 Prague protests. Filmmaker Zack
Winestine rode the entire trip with the caravan, filming from his
bicycle as events unfolded. He recounts his hopes, fears, and
questions, conveying the experience of participating in a community
trying to bring about change that is both visionary and concrete.
The film will be released to DVD on August 14 by Cinema Libre Studio.
Extras include an extended scene, trailer, DVD-Rom feature with
extensive information about economic globalization, and a short film
about the 2001 FTAA protests in Quebec City. The film will be
available through all internet DVD retailers or directly from the
Zack Winestine has directed short films, documentaries, and music
videos. His first feature film, "States of Control", played at film
festivals worldwide and received both domestic and international
distribution. He has also worked for many years as a Director of
Photography on independent features, music videos (for groups such as
the B-52's, ZZ Top, Harry Connick Jr., and Public Enemy), and
documentaries. A formative early experience was his work as assistant
to the Director of Photography on Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining".
