Big Noise Tactical Media

New York

Big Noise Tactical is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer collective of media-makers around the world, dedicated to circulating beautiful, passionate, revolutionary images. We are not filmmakers producing and distributing our work. We are rebels, crystallizating radical community and weaving a network of skin and images, of dreams and bone, of solidarity and connection against the isolation, alienation and cynicism of empire and capitalist decomposition.

Our films include:

Zapatista (1998)
Black and Gold (1999)
This Is What Democracy Looks Like (2000)
The Fourth World War (2003)

Some of our television and tactical media pieces:

Showdown in Seattle (1999)
Breaking the Bank (2000)
Storm From the Mountain (2001)
9.11. (2001)
The Independence of East Timor (2002)
Our World Is Not For Sale (2002)
Kilometer 0 (2003)
