TELESTREETS

Telestreet is a short film documenting the vast network of close to 200 micro TV transmitters that have sprung from Italy’s vibrant political counter-culture. Telestreet has grown in opposition to media tycoon and Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s control of close to 90% of the daily audience. But Telestreet also reaches far beyond this, linking up with video distribution on the net to create new forms of media production and social activism to challenge the media monopolies.
