Last Tuesday members of Occupy Cinema headed to Bowling Green for a special projection and performance inspired by the now-iconic ballerina bull image that invited the world to participate in the Occupy movement.
Over the span of several hours the collective projected footage of Anna Pavlova, Maya Deren's "Meditation on Violence" and Alain Resnais & Robert Hessens's "Guernica" onto the bull and surrounding environs. Then, the group headed into the nearby Brooklyn College Graduate Center to speak with a classroom on Theories of Anti-Capitalist Movements. Afterwards Occupy Cinema returned to the bull for an encore performance and ceremonial tossing of flowers.
This footage serves as a teaser for a full recap of the evening that will be online shortly. That video will screen Saturday, January 7 during Anthology Film Archives's programs supporting Occupy Wall Street co-organized with Occupy Cinema.
