Subject: For Life Against the War Again Call for Work
*Jewels and Gems * from the Film-makers' Cooperative presents:
*"FOR LIFE AGAINGST THE WAR ... AGAIN!" - * CALL FOR DVD WORKS
Forty years ago, 20 avant-garde filmmakers envisioned a "Week of the Angry
Arts". Each artist created a short film in the name of * PEACE*.
Filmmakers such as Stan Vanderbeek, Robert Frank, Storm de Hirsch, Robert
Breer, Ken Jacobs, Shirley Clarke, Carolee Schneemann and Larry Jordan were
part of this collective outcry against violence.
In a similar spirit, get out your cameras and shoot up to *three minutes* of
video, then send it to the Film Coop. Become a part of a CINEMA FOR
PEACEby having your work screened on this historical September 25th
