WASHINGTON August 17, 2012 — American Autumn: an Occudoc is the first feature-length documentary on the Occupy movement. This fast-paced, fact-filled production was filmed in New York, Boston, and Washington D.C., beginning in the earliest days of the movement. The film recounts recent history in a manner quite different from the way many viewers may recall it. American Autumn answers those who continue to ask, “What does the Occupy movement stand for?”
American Autumn features footage from numerous Occupy actions and comments from many of those involved, including interviews and insight from key organizers and thinkers such as Medea Benjamin, David Degraw, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Lee Camp, Naomi Klein, Nathan Schneider, Ashley Sanders, Vlad Teichberg, Sgt. Shamar Thomas, Dr. Cornel West, and Kevin Zeese.
Director Dennis Trainor, Jr. will be at the event and available for interviews.
Dennis Trainor, Jr. is currently the host of AcronymTV.com. He has been writing and producing editorial video commentary since 2007, publishing over 800 videos during that time. His videos have garnered over 30 million views on YouTube alone.
Review of the Film:
David Swanson, reviewing the film on MichaelMoore.com, writes: “We now have a film of our own. This is not amateur hour. This is a movie as well made, in technical terms, as any Hollywood blockbuster with Pentagon funding. American Autumn moves, like Occupy, beyond the streets. We watch home foreclosure resistance in action. We see a movement building the demand for Medicare for All. We see the activism and the personal stories of horrendous and unjust, unnecessary suffering - combined with the determination to push back and to do so long-term, relentlessly. We see labor come into the movement and the possibility realized of persuading organized labor to act on its own behalf and all of ours. War and the war economy take the stage as central opponents of peace and justice. Student debt, the environment, energy, agriculture, homelessness, the prison business, and money in elections: these crises and the organizing around them are brought together by resistance to government by the 1%.”
