October 1st, 2011, NYC, day 14 of the Occupy Wall Street movement. This was my first time participating in the protests that had now lasted two weeks and appeared to be growing in strength and spreading across the country. I brought a video camera with me not knowing anything about what was planned for that day, other than that there was going to be a march, as it turned out, for a brief time we collectively occupied The Brooklyn Bridge before 700 of our numbers were trapped by the police and arrested.
This was my experience. Music: "Money" by Pink Floyd.
The film was featured at the Ascona International Film Festival in Switzerland.
