Generation OS13 - The New Culture of Resistance

We were approached at the end of 2010 just after the student riots, to make a film that expressed the the current mood in the protest movement, and featured Artists, Musicians and Journalists. The film took inspiration from the Hacker Collective Anonymous.

Upon it's release the film was widely enjoyed, including by Agents of the British Secret Service, who felt the need to personally inform us that, "there won't be a revolution in Britain, because the Police is well trained, and the Army is well armed" (British Secret Service)

Blurb below:

Generation OS13 is an explosive insight into the attack on civil liberties occurring in western democracies and how artists, musicians, journalists and authors encourage the peoples right to resist against Banker occupation.

Examining economic dictatorships, puppet regimes, tax havens, tax dodgers, and the debt based money system the film explains why 'you can not count on the law makers to see shit when it first happens'. For a new era, generation OS13, the repression will not be tolerated; do 'the government really think they can win that war if the young people are like fuck this, you cant beat that you, can't beat us, its Impossible'  - Saul Williams.

Featuring Painter, poet & song writer Billy Childish, Harry Malt from Bare Bones, Luke Turner from The Quietus, journalist Huw Nesbitt, broadcaster Max Kaiser, author Nicholas Shaxson  & Artists Anika, Comanechi, Gaggle's & Saul Williams.

"Those bailouts were absolutely required to save your civilisation, now if you talk about bail outs for everyone else you have to say to say to those people suck it in and cope buddy, suck it in and cope"

The Potemkin League - The Heist Of Liverpool FC

This documentary explores Liverpool Football Club's history, delving into the Shankly mythology and socialist militancy of the Liverpool people. They proved, as in the 80′s, to be a divergent force in the face of changing football, politics and international finance. Through football the social-economic and political tendencies of a new generation began to awake.

The film was released September 2010 to rave reviews:

"Brilliantly made documentary showing what the club and fans have had to go through in the last few years, very informative and shows what the club means to us all. Well done to all involved."

"Excellent stuff that, just finished watching the last one top marks to the queuepolitely and everyone else who helped contribute!"

"5 Stars"

Northern Light: Iceland's Creative Revolution

I was asked by DazedDigital to make a film about Icelands Creative Revolution. Set during the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival and with a backdrop of the recent political and Socio-Economic upheavals.

"Dazed TV present a documentary about how the young generation of a country ravaged by the economic crisis and the threat of corporate takeovers are fighting back." (DazedDigital)

The documentary raises awareness of Icelandic political prisoners, local municipalities complicity in the corporate takeover of Thermal Energy plants by Canadian Conglomerate MAGMA ENERGY (Local municipalities handed their share of Thermal Energy plants over to MAGMA ENERGY for a measly 1.5% interest p.a) etc

The mood in Iceland is perhaps best expressed by comedian-turned-mayor of Reykjavik, Jon Gnarr. View his party political broadcast here:
