  1. In October 2008 Iceland was hit with one of the biggest financial disasters any nation in the world had experienced. In response, citizens took to the streets creating what is now known as the “Pots and Pans Revolution”.

    In response to widespread media silence and a growing global trend towards people-led movements, this documentary explores how and why the people of Iceland resisted the measures imposed by their government following the crisis of 2008 and how they forced their government to resign in an attempt to forge a new political path.

    Filmed in Reykjavik between 2012 and 2014, the documentary meets the instigators of the revolution and follows the most important National Referendum in Iceland’s history. Giving the Icelandic people the opportunity to decide whether to support a constitution that had been created through a popular grassroots movement. Through this we explore the Icelanders' story of their nation and their revolution but also what lessons can be learned globally from their experiences.

    In light of a growing international trend towards grassroots movements crossing over into mainstream politics. This documentary is a timely portrayal of one such movement and their struggle to change the face of democracy.

  3. This film was originally uploaded to You Tube on Oct 16, 2011:

    Video from the St. Paul's Cathedral Occupy London Stock Exchange (LSX) movement that began on the 15 October 2011.

    This video communicates some of the reasons, motives and objectives of the assembly of protestors demonstrating outside St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

    It's a global movement. On the 15 October, thousands of people in 82 countries around the world took to the streets to occupy public areas to demonstrate against global financial corruption, greed, and mismanagement.

    They are united globally by a need for change.
