While well-rehearsed, well-choreographed, and written better than most Hollywood movies, George Bush”s 2003 State of the Union Address somehow dropped the ball in the fact-checking department. Paper Tiger”s “Restating the Union Address” attempts to correct the record. Featuring pop-ups correcting George”s most obvious blunders, it also includes interviews with scores of anti-war demonstrators in Manhattan, Washington D.C. and the Bronx. It is rounded out with a counter military recruitment segment. All-in-all a fabulous 28 minutes to counter war hysteria. Restating the Union also features a segment from the PTTV/Impact Coalition/Bronx Defenders production “War and the Economy” where High School students from the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn look at how the threat of war with Iraq would economically impact the communities of New York.
