Occupy Wall Street

Show Summary

Occupy Wall Street is a series of short films and video presentations of a citizen's protest moment in the United States that targets banks and big business. The series opens with a short film from an economics professor at Colombia University, Moshe Adler, which reports on how the economy forces everyday people to hit the streets in protest. Opening with interviews from protesters in New York City and Oakland, CA, Adler gets some feedback about why they are there. One person talks about the widening gap between the rich and the poor. Another tells Adler that the Occupy Wall Street is an example of democracy in action. The professor then presents some quick numbers on the current situation of the US economy before ending the series with footage of a peaceful protester being carried to the hospital after police shoot him with tear gas. A short documentary from filmmaker Philippe Diaz runs during the season, as well as videos from interviews found on the TV shows CNN and The View.
