Aaron Aites und Audrey Ewell | USA | 2012 | 97 min | English Subtitles
In September 2011, the Occupy Wall Street Movement propelled issues of economic inequality into the spotlight. In the documentary personal stories imbue analysis of big picture issues with the real-world struggles of those compelled to take action, speak up, march, and risk arrest. Supporters, participants, experts and critics shed light on why and how this movement took off with such force, and ask what the next phase might encompass. Made in a collaboration of almost 100 filmmakers across the country, the production process of this feature film offers a uniquely diverse way of bringing context to the movement that has swept up America; and much of the world, with its story.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session, in the presence of the directors Audrey Ewell, and Aaron Aites. The discussion will be led by Anna Müller-Funk (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Human Rights).
The screening is part of the film festival this human world.
The event is held in English.
