Courtney Fellion’s freshly-inked “Manifestoes and Declarations” issue of Canyon Cinemazine#4 kicks off the media-art component of SOS-SF, a 2-week course of creative resistance to the corporate onslaught on our City. As artists’ and cultural spaces are daily steamrolled, we fight back with the Anti-Eviction Mapping’s Project’s oral histories, Jeff Taylor/Whispered Media’s Boom (exc.), Rio Yanez on Mission galleries, Peter Menchini’s brave reports on the Midtown, Vanguard, and Ed Lee shams, Jonathan Youtt, Josh Wolf, and Carla Leshne’s chronicles of CELLspace activism…and Karyn Smoot’s ATA window installation! Anchoring these tactical reports is the oh-so-strategic West Coast debut of Deep State, a long-form Flaherty-nominated cine-tract on the global wave of opposition against the neo-liberal “market”. Inspired by the Occupy Movement, written by China Miéville, and masterfully montaged by Brad Butler and Karen Mirza—also displaced from their London underground film lab no.w.here–this Vertovian essay ponders possible actions against Capitalist monoculture.
