iReports on the big screen

austinchu and his brother set out to travel to U.S. cities that were most affected by the economic recession. They weren’t sure if they would make it through all 50 states, but they wanted to try. Along the way, they shared iReports of what they found on their travels.

Now their journey, which did indeed hit every state in the union, has become a documentary, “The Recess Ends," premiering Wednesday in San Francisco.

“Some of the Midwest cities took us by surprise,” austinchu said. “Detroit is physically devastating. When you look through the eyes of the people, it’s different from what you see in the city itself.”

ChrisMorrow has a documentary premiering soon as well. “Wyland Earth Day” follows the artist Wyland’s attempt to create a massive mural of the earth on top of the Long Beach Convention Center in Calfornia. She shared Wyland’s progress on iReport.com as he raced to finish this project in time for Earth Day, which was fast approaching, and now the full story will be premiering on the big screen at the San Diego Film Festival on Sunday.

It’s quite extraordinary that these remarkable stories will be told as documentaries on the big screen. Of course, these are just two examples of documentarians on iReport.com. If you have a project like this in the works, share your story!

There is a situation in St Vincent and the Grenadines. St Vincent and the Grenadines - known as SVG sometimes - is a democratic nation governed by a Governor General and Prime Minister. according to report out of SVG the present Prime Minister is seeking votes on a referandum, which if passed will removed the country entiry from British rule. in the eyes of most St Vincentians, this is a good move forward, but the Prime Minister's aim is to change the government system from being democratic to comunist state. this is accoriding to local people.

 

this is evident to St Vincentians since the PM has close relations with Venezuela, Cuba, and Iranian Presidents.

 

there are many ore vital information to share. The people of SVG need the US governemnt to assist them in preventing the PM from changing the constituion for his personal endeavours.

 

More report to come, once this one is approved.
