Watch: Looking at Occupy Wall Street From All Angles in the Trailer for Collaborative Doc '99%'

Mirroring the collaborative effort of Occupy Wall Street, over 100 filmmakers have contributed footage to "99%: The Occupy Wall Street Collaborative Film," a doc that covers the causes and implications of the 2011 movement. The film had its world premiere at Sundance back in January, and its trailer has hit the web on the cusp of its theatrical release and broadcast premiere next month. The doc features everyone from activists taking part in the movement to detractors of it to political and financial experts, all of whom help craft a unique and multi-faceted portrait of the various hardships and complications of our current economic system, and what went on to inspire such dramatic courses of action.

"99%" hits theaters on September 6, and will air on Participant's new cable network Pivot on Tuesday, September 17.

    It seems Americans are getting more tolerant day by day.

    I hope the movie is honest about the misogyny and racism in the Occupy movement. Unfortunately, Occupy was a white male movement. That was one of its problems.

    Never has a movement sparked so much but has contributed so little than the Occupy movement, which had evaporated one year later. It wasn't even around to affect the 2012 elections. It will be interesting to see if this film will explain why it petered out in less than a year. Will the film re-kindle the movement?
