This film tells the story of the Occupy movement and its roots through the voices of the people who made it happen.
On September 17, 2011 a demonstration expressing the pent-up anger against the hardships weighing down on millions of people as a result of the economic collapse of 2008, took place at Bowling Green in lower Manhattan. By the end of the afternoon an encampment had been established in a small park, a few blocks north of Wall St. There, in Zuccotti Park, a movement was born, it was called “Occupy Wall St.”.
It is an energetic film, dense with action footage of demonstrations, clashes with police, musical performances etc. The film also demonstrates how the concerns of the occupiers have grown and encompass a wide range of issues from economy, war, healthcare, environment, housing, civil liberties etc.
Donations will be collected for “THE ROLLING JUBILEE”, a “bailout of the people by the people”. Rolling Jubilee is a Strike Debt project that buys debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, abolishes it! - http://rollingjubilee.org
