About the Film
Manly starts the film with random interviews on the street with two questions “Have your heard about the SPP, the Security Prosperity Partnership?” and “Have you heard about TILMA the Trade Investment Labour Mobility Agreement?” None of the people he asks have heard anything about these two agreements and so his next question is why not? Unable to obtain interviews with any government ministers responsible for these agreements or with any other proponents, Manly sets out to find out what all the silence is about and what these agreements will mean to the citizens of Canada.
‘You, Me, and the S.P.P: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule‘ is a feature length documentary which exposes the corporatist agenda that is currently undermining the democratic authority of the citizens of North America. Two processes, the Security Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and the Trade Investment Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) are rapidly eroding and eliminating standards, civil liberties, regulatory systems and institutions put in place over generations through the democratic process.
Told through interviews with various experts who oppose this agenda and through the experiences of ordinary citizens who are feeling the effects of its implementation ‘You, Me and the SPP’ lays out the breadth and depth of the SPP and TILMA and outlines what we as citizens can do to stop it.
Manly decided to premiere the film in Nanaimo first, because the local community has provided him with the bulk of the financial and moral support needed to complete this project. He said he could not and would not have produced this film without the amazing support he received here.
This premiere screening is sponsored by the Human Rights and International Solidarity Committee of the VIU Faculty Association, the VIU Students Union and the Nanaimo Global Film Festival. Admission is by donation, all proceeds will go towards the promotional budget to help get this film out to as wide an audience as possible. There will be a special preview screening for VIU students on February 5th in the afternoon in 356/109, 2:30-4:30pm.
The preview version of ‘You, Me and the SPP’ is also scheduled to screen at the World Community Film Festival in Courtenay on February 7th and in Vancouver on February 14th It will also screen in Nanaimo again at the Nanaimo Global Film Festival on the weekend of March 20th.
