“Occupy the Bay” Documentary Release Screening and Party

 

“ABOUT THE FILM:

“Occupy the Bay” is a documentary video project directed by Jonathan Riley and produced by Kevin Pina/Long Memory Productions. This one-hour documentary chronicles the local incarnation of the Occupy Movement, which officially started in September 2011 on Wall St., and then spread across the country and continues today. Rather than aiming to define the scope of the entire Occupy Movement, to create a one-sentence slogan articulating its goals, or to abstractly discuss its impact on the “national conversation,” this film focuses more specifically on events in the Bay Area and their impact. From Occupy Oakland’s port shutdowns and controversial decision to embrace a “diversity of tactics,” to police brutality that has attracted attention nationally and worldwide, this movie deals with the unique factors that have made the story of the Occupy Movement in the San Francisco Bay Area what it is today.”"
