OCCUPY THE MEDIA | Thursday October 20th
The Role of Independent Media at Occupy Wall Street

October 20th, 7:30pm
The Commons
388 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn
$8 suggested donation (nobody turned away)
 
4 FILMS • 10 FILMMAKERS • OCCUPY WALL STREET
Watch the trailer
In just under three weeks over 10,000 videos about OccupyWallStreet have been created and uploaded online. These videos—revealing police excess, marches, general assemblies and more formal documentaries covering the nature and processes of the movement—are helping to activate and proliferate the movement worldwide.
The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective will host a discussion and screening looking at the practice and theory of covering a social movement through video. Four of the most viewed videos from #OccupyWallStreet (with over 600,500 views to date) will be presented by the Brooklyn filmmakers who created them.
Guest moderator Martin Lucas, director of the Integrated Media Arts MFA program at Hunter College and a senior fellow at the Center for Health Media Policy, will lead a discussion on the role of video in social movements, the coverage of Occupy Wall Street, and the potential challenges of the overwhelming amount of media coming out of Occupy Wall Street today.
An informal reception to follow. Oh, and cheap beers.
