Short films capture streets for history and action
March 24th, 2007

Since immigration reform brought crowds into the streets last May, videos have been works to release before Mayday 2007. The videos are from the work of grassroots media activists who captured voices and stories in 2006. The work is described in Spanish and English on the Giant Awake! website:

¬°Gigante: Despierta! is a DVD compilation of compelling short films from all around the country, due to hit the streets in the weeks before Mayday 2007. Shot, edited, and brought together by a network of independent video activists, graphic designers, community organizers, musicians, and immigrant rights activists, it is a collective memory and a tool to inspire action this MayDay 2007, when the Giant will raise its voice again to say: we are one people, without borders. We are here, and we are here to stay!
