Can the 99% prevail? Occupy The Movie will interweave short vignettes – documenting each event that shapes the movement’s evolution – and candid interviews with leading figures around the movement – academics, politicians, philosophers, economists, and many more. Like the Occupy Wall Street movement, Occupy The Movie is dynamic, diverse, and still growing. Follow us on Twitter for updates on new vignettes and interviews as they come in. Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Corey Ogilvie (Nash: the Documentary, Streets of Plenty, Think Peace).
The Occupy movement is an international protest movement which is primarily directed against economic and social inequality.
