The director's motivation

The democracy is a splendid tool which allows each one to express ideas and to act for a better world. The development of a society is the responsibility of each one and as a filmmaker it is my responsibility to initiate reflections and so be part of a democratic process. - LN
- "Je ne suis pas d'accord avec ce que vous dites, mais je me battrai jusqu'à la mort pour que vous ayez le droit de le dire."
(I do not agree with what you say, but I will fight until death so that you have the right to say it.) - Voltaire

Move against G8

Made by exilfilm for G8 Kultur Programm


As a beginner Carlos will be guided by Pedram Shahyar, experienced coordinator of attac, responsible for this summer creative protest against the G8. In the protest camp, Carlos will learn how to behave during a pacific demonstration, will share his motivation with people from around the world, and maybe change the world...

Carlos Leal always wanted to get involved in the "globalization from below" movement. A movement that fights for a fair and social globalization that benefits all human beings instead of a world order that is fattening the profits of multinational corporations and financial markets, characterized by environmental degradation, war and constantly growing poverty in the global south and in the industrialized countries.
Moved by the tragic event of Genoa in 2001, where Carlo Giuliani, a young demonstrator was brutally killed by an Italian carabiniere, Carlos wrote a song "La Haine est sans Loi".

Due to professional reasons, Carlos could not go to the protests of Genoa and Evian. This year, like thousands of human beings who do not agree with the current policies of the G8, Carlos will not miss the protest of Heiligendamm in Germany.

Global Pirates - the film

Global Pirates is a feature length fictionalized-documentary film that will be shot in June 2007 in Heiligendamm, during the G8 summit in Germany. Carlos Leal - Swiss European Shooting Star, "Casino Royale" , "Snow White", and singer of Sens Unik - and the well known Pedram Shahyar from attac are the protagonists of this promising project, that involves film making, politics and creative resistance, such as music and improvised acting.
