G8 Scotland

North American Premiere

When the G8 World Leaders came to Scotland recently in July 2005, seasoned activists and concerned individuals were ready for them. Against a background of escalating and menacing police presence on the streets of Edinburgh, it shows their articulate views about Make Poverty History, the African Debt Crisis, Global Warming, Free Trade, Holy Bob Geldof and the supposed “Lennon and McCartney” of International Debt Relief - Brown and Blair. This arresting and compelling film smashes the myth of apathy and lethargy in the younger generation, and presents a youth account of one of the most significant weeks in Scotland’s current political history.
