About the Movie

The first feature length documentary on the Occupy movement, American Autumn: an occudoc not only offers answers for those who continue to ask: "what does the occupy movement stand for? What are our demands?" - it offers a challenge and an invitation to engage with the movement. The Occupy movement seeks to be an equalizing force for good in a world dominated by greed. The question some of us within the Occupy movement are trying to solve is this one: what would a world look like that had a culture and an economic system that places human need above corporate greed, and how do we bring that world into being? Who cares what it's called? Call it Socialism, Real Democracy Now, or Chunky-Monkey-Cherry Garcia. The world needs to change radically and dramatically--and it needs to change fast. Without debating the merits of capitalism versus socialism, the way capitalism operates right now in our global culture delivers poverty, misery, and is downright homicidal. People do, in fact, die for lack of access to health-care. Human consumption is, in fact, accelerating the destruction of our planet. People do, in fact, die in wars waged based on lies that profit a precious few. Over 5 million children globally each year do not reach a 5th birthday because they die of starvation. This is not because the system that puts man on the moon or can squeeze an entire library onto a computer chip the size of a thumbnail has failed to find a way to feed these children. Rather, our system is so competitive that it accepts these deaths as a natural component of a capitalist model that dominates world markets. In short, the system is driven by corporate greed, not human need.

Customer Reviews

Powerful, inspirational, real

Whether you were a part of Occupy or this is the first time you've looked up the movement, this brilliantly produced documentary is mandatory viewing. I cheered, cried, got angry, laughed, was inspired and made it to the credits ready to find a cause I care about and get involved. Watch it and pass it on.

Important film for social movement work

This is a well-done film which situates the social movement actor at the center of the current class struggle. It helps viewers understand how oppressive forces intersect to form a seemingly "normal" way of living and how actors have identified and worked to deconstruct them.

Must Watch

An important film for our time expertly produced. Definitely a must watch!
