Battle In Seattle

Starring - Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta, Andre Benjamin, Joshua Jackson, Michelle Rodriguez, Channing Tatum, Connie Nielson

Based on one of the most incendiary political uprisings in a generation, BATTLE IN SEATTLE takes an in depth and personal look at the five days that shook Seattle , The United States, and ultimately the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of The World Trade Organization. What started out as a peaceful and successful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-fledged riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared peaceful and unarmed protesters of with the Seattle Police Department and National Guard.

A "ticking time bomb" political action-drama in the vein of "Crash" and "The Constant Gardener", BATTLE IN SEATTLE intertwines our points of view of all facets of this world-renowned event. Our lead characters are protestors, to pedestrians, politicos, to police, delegates and doctors. No perspective is left untold in this cross section and dissection of the films story lines of those who intentionally or accidentally find themselves on the streets of Seattle on those fateful last days of November 1999.

Enlisting the expertise Britain's critically acclaimed Director of Photography, BARRY ACKROYD (United 93), writer/director. STUART TOWNSEND will combine dramatic theatrical performances with actual footage from the Seattle riots to bring these contrasting points of view to the big screen.

BATTLE IN SEATTLE is a film destined to excite, engage and enrage audiences everywhere.
