Film: The Fourth World War

2 shows: 7 & 9 PM

$3. admission

Rosewood Theater and Cafe,

218 Walnut St., Morgantown, West Virginia

Presented by the Emiliano Zapata Film Club


'The Fourth World War' is a stunning, controversial, partisan and very
passionate movie about the global struggles for social and economic
justice; from Argentina to Quebec to Mexico to Italy; from Palestine to
South Africa to South Korea. The filmmakers are very open about their
being a part of these movements. It is also about the endless war
promised by the most powerful governments in the world today. This
movie exposes subjects that aren't covered well, or at all, in
mainstream media and entertainment. This film will not be showing at
your local movie house in Morgantown.

The Emiliano Zapata Film Club was formerly called the Radical Film
Night club. We have been hosting movies since around '98-'99. We've
shown movies at 123 Pleasant St., the Morgantown Public Library, and
in private home parties. Most films we choose are documentaries with
a radical or progressive viewpoint. We've shown movies like 'Land and
Freedom,' 'Incident At Oglala,' 'Zapatista Women', etc. We've shown
news shorts from the many Independent Media Centers around
the planet. People from the Club will be on hand on March 3rd and
people are welcome to discuss their impressions and feelings about
the movie after the film showing.

Big Noise Tactical is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer collective of
media-makers around the world, dedicated to circulating beautiful,
passionate, revolutionary images.

We are not filmmakers producing and distributing our work. We are
rebels, crystallizating radical community and weaving a network of skin
and images, of dreams and bone, of solidarity and connection against
the isolation, alienation and cynicism of capitalist decomposition.

We are tactical because our media is a part of movements, imbedded
in a history of struggle. Tactical because we are provisional, plural,
polyvocal. Tactical because it would be the worst kind of arrogance to
believe that our media had some ahistorical power to change the world
- its only life is inside of movements - and they will hang our images on
the walls of their banks if our movements do not tear their banks down.

In 2004, against a war that shatters and divides, join a global web of
images and dreams, of blood and bone, of men and women who will
stop this war.

Big Noise Films invites you to join the worldwide network of
screenings/organizing events around The Fourth World War - a
powerful, passionate new film that weaves together the stories of
movements and communities on the ground in Chiapas, Argentina,
South Africa, Palestine, South Korea, Iraq, New York, Quebec City and

After 7 years as part of a growing underground distribution network, it is
time to take the struggle downtown and take our films out of the
warehouses and into the theaters. Activists and movements around the
world are planning theatrical runs, parties and organizing events
around the Fourth World War beginning in February.

Help bring the film to your community:

Films like this will never be carried on the shelves of Blockbuster,
images like these will never be seen on FOX or CNN, stories like these
will never be told in SONY multiplexes. We do not have a media
machine behind us, but we have something much more powerful - we
have a movement and that movement is you.
