presentation about our social film documentary
“ American Vertigo “
The Big Story
June 29, 2016
Written by Jerry Ashton.
This is a film presentation and documentation of the transformation of America through the outcry and collective awareness that emerges from its most poignant social and financial challenges.
Patrick de Warren spent six years documenting Occupy and it’s aftermath, compelled by the Occupy movement’s populism conversation – a public outcry scribbled on pieces of cardboard by the 99% to create an awareness of income inequality, corporate-purchased politicians, and social and environmental issues.
The Film concept:
The 2008 economic crisis has begun to fade into the past. President Obama’s final term is nearing its end. The near collapse of GM, financial and job insecurity reaching new heights, the Arab Spring and the Occupy Wall Street movement all have receded into our collective long-term memory , of our past if we are to believe most of the main stream media press.
Few care to dwell on the consequences of this financial crisis: The mortgage-backed securities collapse, the home foreclosure, the dispossession of hundred of thousands of Americans along with their savings and retirement funds.
And the few who are tasked with reminding us of this travesty have gone silent. In fact, they are even more vocal and visible and have taken on local crises.
Such as the methane leak in south Los Angeles, the scandalous Flint water crisis, Black Lives Matter, and even the epidemic of heroin-spread HIV in the Midwest . All can be traced back to the continuing aftershocks of the 2008 financial crash.
The 2008 economic crisis is a story without ending. The financial inequality central to the grievances of the Occupy Wall Street movement is in no way dealt with successfully. It has simply transformed into a seemingly endless period of open class conflict. >>>
And now, “AMERICAN VERTIGO.”
We are completing a feature length film documentary about the Occupy Wall Street movement ranging from some of it’s earliest days to its many present incarnations of Protest.
The film is a careful-woven cinematic, intimate and emotional documentary of film footage taken during the two years that Occupy was active in New York City. It celebrates interviews with the ordinary citizens, activists, politicians, economists, Artists and anthropologist of the American and European left who were there.
The film is their argument in powerful and intimate black-and-white.
It’s today argument for a better world freed of corporatocracy and corrupt government. It’s your argument. It’s our argument.
