Why Occupy Portland

  • Cinematography

Shot entirely during the first major Occupy Portland march, this film is intended to function as an antidote to the often misleading and derisive mainstream news coverage of Occupy. Instead of talking to anyone in a clown suit, we met up with economist Robin Hahnel and political scientist Jules Boykoff. We also tried to capture that feeling of cautious optimism that we all felt in the first days of the movement. This piece was featured on Occupy.com and has screened at numerous festivals , including the Occupy Film program.
