usually i go with gil scott-heron and argue the opposite: the structure that makes “television” prevents this media of leading to anything worthy of being called a revolution. in fact, the media have a deep interest in not documenting anything revolutionary that could uproot their comfy status as a major political force that is outside of any democratic controls.
on the other hand, i fully agree that moving images on a screen are the communication technology of the future (and probably already of the present). why else would i keep a blog on audiovisual content for a sustainable future!? that’s why i hope for more cinematographers and people using their 5D(-equivalent)s to make great-looking films about inspiring people/movements/events to transmit the important messages of our time.
