On the first day of Occupy Vancouver there was a dimension of serious protest in response to unemployment, poverty, concern for the environment, etc. However, there was certainly also a dimension of celebration; a celebration of our democratic rights and freedoms and of the coming together of artists and originals who found a voice and a sense of belonging that perhaps they hadn't before.
The intention of this short film is to capture elements of both the serious and the celebration that took place. It is not to put forward any personal opinions concerning the protest.
Note: this video contains coarse language.
This is the re-edited version that was short-listed in the "Reel BC Video Contest" held by the Tyee Online Magazine.
Location: Vancouver, Vancouver Art Gallery
