Flugennock, the Documentary

By mike flugennockTuesday - June 28th, 2016Categories: media

Total running time: 19:19
Music by: Rations and Utter Failure on 86′d Records

Ron Douglas, producer of this documentary, is an Assistant Professor of Multimedia Communications at Wesley College, Delaware; he was a student activist involved in the anti-globalization movement at the turn of the century (this one) and became a fan of my work while wheatpasting my posters for the 2000 Spring IMF/World Bank mobilization.

Fast-forward 15 years — Ron has become an accomplished filmmaker and documentarian, producing films about police brutality, and about Native American boarding schools in the US and Canada. Last summer, he contacted me about being the subject in one of a series of documentaries on the emergence of citizen journalism on the Internet, and specifically the creation of the Independent Media Centers across the US and the world in the wake of the Seattle WTO mobilization of 1999, and the “A16″ mobilization at the IMF and World Bank in the spring of 2000.

This film provides a brief history of my cartoon work going back to the Yipster Times in the late 1970s, and my art and media activist involvement with the antiglobalization and antiwar movements of the ’00s, and my work with the DC Statehood and marijuana legalization campaign of 2014.

Gotta hurry on back to my hotel room,
where I got me a date with a pretty little girl from Greece;
she told me she would be there with me
when I paint my masterpiece!

–Dylan.

I try to think more about the guy we met at Dupont Circle who was overjoyed to have finally discovered where these posters came from, or the students from the George Washington Action Coalition out for a late-night bicycle ride on P Street who stopped off and jazzed us up with a quick blast of solidarity (”Yo, wheatpasters!”) to take my mind off the “neighbor” on Connecticut Avenue who stalked us — tearing down posters — for two blocks, and the DC cop who became frustrated with his own piss-poor knowledge of the law and inability to cite us for anything and proceeded to stalk us and tear down posters all the way down P Street from Dupont Circle almost to Georgetown, committing no less than half a dozen separate basic Constitutional violations in the process against our crew.

So, the next time you bump into some pacifist liberal who wants to “negotiate” with the police, direct them to this video.
