A documentary disguised as a music video.
Shot over the course of apx. 4 hours on October 1st, 2011, in Zuccotti Park, and on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC. It was day 14 of the Occupy Wall Street movement and a march had been planned, however the destination was as yet unannounced. 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 to document the event and as it turned out, for a brief time we collectively occupied The Brooklyn Bridge; at least until 700 of our number were trapped by police from both sides & arrested. This was my experience. Music: "Money" by Pink Floyd. Video: **Re-edited, remixed, and re-uploaded as of 7/11/14
