About the Film:

“Our ultimate goal is to make a beautiful, compelling, resonant and honest film about the Occupy Wall Street movement. Our goal on this page is to have as many supporters as possible, and to raise the funds to make this film (current goal is 10K). Please donate, and please ask your friends to donate, as much or as little as you can. Every bit of support is vital and sustaining. If you are the 99% – or if you’d just like to see a film about it – this is it.” — Michael Galinsky

Current Status:
