By "IMP ACTIVISM " I mean POLITICAL ACTIVISM that has an IMPish sense of humor & that, hopefully, has IMPACT. How long have I been an activist? Was I an activist when I revolted against the restraints of Kindergarten? Probably not. When I became a full-blown anti-authoritarian in Elementary School? Not until, at age 11, I refused to stand, put my hand over my heart, & recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. & this WASN'T following an example set by my parents - they were "Staunch Republicans" - I came to this on my own. When I spontaneously participated in a resistance to returning to class age 13? Pretty unformed. When I didn't attend school but, instead, stood across the street from my High School to participate in an action in solidarity w/ teachers trying to get better wages? That was mainly my going along w/ a friend. When I refused to register for the draft during the Vietnam War? Indeed. How much change has come about that I perceive as positive? Much.. But not enuf. RESISTANCE IS FERTILE.

There're 58 movies of mine listed below that I think of primarily as political movies. Some of them are 'propaganda' (or anti-propaganda), some are quasi-documentaries of protest actions, some are quasi-documentaries of political history, some are things connected to or made for alternative media such as pirate tv & a phone station, etc, etc..
