The self-initiated cinema is powered by solar panels. The overall themes concentrate on the radical leftwing, while the GIBCA program is based on the format of the detective stories. A weekly newsreel is produced by video artists who worked for Indymedia in Göteborg (in 2001 riots and the subsequent trials). The concept is based on Kuxa Kanema newsreels from 70s Mozambique, or Black Audio Film Collective from the 80s in England. Next to the newsreel broadcasted every Saturday in the van, there is also a film program on Eire boat, check the website for the update.
