"Bad Reception: The Wireless Revolution in San Francisco" co-produced by Doug Loranger and Gordon Winiemko directed by Doug Loranger 2003 - Running time: approx. 1 hour Friday, June 13, 2003 8:00 p.m. Artists' Television Access, 992 Valencia Street, San Francisco Admission: $5 Discussion with the producers and invited guests follows. "Compelling, professionally done. . . . Highly recommended." - Mark Scaramella, Anderson Valley Advertiser "SNAFU [has] managed to put together one of the niftiest political campaigns this city has seen in many moons. It also managed to put together a rather nifty video called 'Bad Reception.' Check it out." - Betsey Culp, San Francisco Call The dot-com era in San Francisco provoked responses from the activist community over live-work lofts, illegal evictions, and the displacement of working people and artists from their traditional communities. Less widely reported was the response by ordinary residents to another by-product of this technological revolution - the proliferation of wireless antennas to feed the booming use of cell phones throughout the city. Spurred by credible but often suppressed scientific research, San Francisco residents formed the San Francisco Neighborhood Antenna-Free Union (SNAFU) to resist the potentially hazardous placement of wireless antennas near their homes, schools and health care centers. This conceptually fascinating one-hour documentary follows SNAFU as a growing number of grassroots volunteers takes on one of the most powerful corporate entities in the world. Providing insight into similar struggles throughout the United States and across the globe makes "Bad Reception: The Wireless Revolution in San Francisco" a timely and uplifting look at the local face of an international movement to safeguard individual freedom, personal choice and the safety of our health and environment.
