Following a disparate group of activists occupying lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, this is a timely portrait of a movement at a crossroads. Documenting the arguments, expulsions and mass arrests, Ewell, Aites Krstic and Read’s Sundance hit explores the challenges of a truly grassroots movement supporting a non-hierarchical society opposed to the concentration of money and power in America. Paralleled to similar movements in the UK and beyond, they plan to rebuild a more equitable society, but revolution isn’t easy.
Followed by a discussion beween filmmakers Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell, and advocates of Occupy London. Tickets available from the Genesis Cinema website here
