carlo a. bachschmidt tarafından hazırlanan belgesel 2001 senesinde italya’ nın cenova şehrinde düzenlenen g-8 toplantılarında sokaklara yansıyan iki yüz bini aşkın kişinin katıldığı küreselleşme karşıtı tepkiye, orantısız polis şiddetine (hatta aktivistlerin uyudukları bir okulun sabaha karşı basılarak aktivistlerin dövülmelerine), ve yöntem olarak doğrudan eylemi benimsemiş kara blok’ un eylemliliklerdeki yerine odaklanıyor.
g-8 summits have become synonymous with political protest, civil unrest and running battles between activists and police. the 2001 genoa summit was a particularly dramatic affair, involving around 200,000 protesters and an army of officers whose violent handling of the situation led to a number of individuals being charged. the unprovoked attack on the diaz school which involved police storming the building as activists slept and subjecting them to savage beatings were the examples how brutal police was.
documentary interviews several activists who were at the diaz school and each of them recounts their own version of events. obviously they have all been affected by the experience and although their injuries have long since healed the mental scars remain.
black block reminds us that cinema can educate as well as entertain. you might not agree with the activists or care about there cause but their courage and determination to fight the good fight despite what they suffered at the hands of the state should inspire you and at the very least, earn your respect.
