Mental-Rev is a video collective from the Midwest. we are having our first screening in San Francisco at the ATA. Our films are a combination of graphic video shot at protests around the country (especially the midwest) and heartfelt testimoney from a wide cross section of Americans on important issues. These films are meant to affect people emotionally, create dialogue and foster activism, they are especially targeted at people in the midwest aka: bible country, but i think the left coast will like them as well.
here is the press release.
Mental-Rev Productions presents a night of resistance documentary from the heartland of America. With filmmaker Roger HIll.

Divine Persecution: who has the power to oppress LGBT people...hate spouting homo-phobes or Ohio voters? (Official entry 2006 Minneapolis International Film Festival)
Voices From the Movement: A documentary from the streets of the U.S. Anti-War Movement. (Official entry Take Back Democracy film festival, soon to premiere on Free Speech TV)
Voices From the Movement was shot almost entirely on the streets during Anti-War protests around the country. The film opens dramatically in New York City on February 15, 2003 the largest day of international protest in world history, then travels around the country hearing testimony of intriguing folks over a two year period. And ends defiantly on the rooftops of Athens Ohio on April 5, 2005, on what is just another day of a long war.
