Sibylle Kappe's documentary GE8EN - THE CAMERA MARCHES is an experimental account of the protest culture at the G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany. The film questions the representations of reality from both sides of the debate as filmed in the high pressure zone where power meets opposition. The participants film themselves: amateur shots of seasoned demonstrators in the style of surveillance cameras. Commentary intervention is minimized and the chronology of the scenes remains authentic. The spectator becomes a witness, a participant, a voyeur, an opponent, and a projection surface. GE8EN is a challenge to watch.
