We - the documentary (power, war, corporations, deception, exploitation)
featuring Arundhati Roy

Arundhati Roy (born November 24, 1961) is an Indian novelist, activist and a world citizen. She won the Booker Prize in 1997 for her first novel The God of Small Things. Roy was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize in May 2004 for her work in social campaigns and advocacy of non-violence. In June 2005 she took part in the World Tribunal on Iraq. In January 2006 she was awarded the Sahitya Akademi award for her collection of essays, 'The Algebra of Infinite Justice', but declined to accept it.

We is a professionally made 64 minute fast-paced musical documentary that covers the world politics of power, war, corporations, deception and exploitation.

It visualizes the words of Arundhati, specifically her famous Come September speech, where she spoke on such things as the war on terror, corporate globalization, the Middle East conflicts, September 11th, justice, peace and the growing civil unrest in the world. Witty, moving, alarming and quite a lesson in history.

We is almost in the style of a music video, featuring the contemporary music of Lush, Curve, Love & Rockets, Boards of Canada, Nine Inch Nails, Dead Can Dance, Amon Tobin, Massive Attack, Totoise, Telepop, Placebo and Faithless. The music serves as wonderful background for the words of Ms. Roy and images of humanity in the world we live all in today.

We is a completely free documentary, created (and released) anonymously on the internet.
