Pivot Specials: 99% - The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film

In Zuccotti Park, at the height of the Occupy Wall Street protests, amid the black baklava-clad protestors, a man in a suit proclaims “This is the proudest I’ve ever been to be an American in my life.” While the police beat and pepper spray peaceful protestors, a retired police officer in uniform commits himself to being arrested in solidarity and military veterans shout, “This is the only occupation I believe in.” Occupy Wall Street began as a meme and morphed into a movement, but while many people (including much of the mainstream media) marginalized the campaign as aimless, greedy, the rantings of the young and angry, this collaboratively-made film makes clear that the issues raised really do affect the majority of Americans, and the 99% truly do represent the breadth and diversity of our citizenry.
