East Coast Premiere

“Our world is not for sale” is the declaration at the heart of Irish actor and first time writer-director Stuart Townsend’s provocative and heartfelt film, Battle in Seattle. Sparked by tens of thousands protesting the 1999 World Trade Organization conference, riots in the normally laid-back Northwestern city spanned five days, and the scene eventually grew into a state of emergency. Woven together with actual footage and dramatic performances, the film showcases the events from multiple points of view including protestors, police, and city officials. Characters are drawn from those on the front lines to innocent bystanders caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The filmmaker skillfully uses an all-star cast including Oscar winner Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ray Liotta, and Andre (3000) Benjamin to bring the chaotic and frightening true events to the screen. As civil liberties and global economics collide, the fights in Battle in Seattle are as relevant today as they were at the turn of the millennium.

'Battle in Seattle' is currently set to have its theatrical release in the US in September 2008. You can CLICK HERE for even more information about the upcoming film festival on their official site.
