    Heading off the Occupy Congress march on January 17, 2012, singer/songwriter Joe Nolan sang his anthem "Occupy Song" on the East Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. In this film, Joe's music accompanies the march up Capitol Hill, ending at the Supreme Court. From there, the film takes a vérité style U-turn as it follows the march down Pennsylvania Avenue, ending at the White House. As the companion piece to a combination of "Zucotti Park Zoo: Being There" and its musical sibling "Payroll | Occupy" that I filmed in New York City last October, this film visualizes the Occupy movement against a backdrop of democratic iconography - there are weirdly beautiful moments in this film. I never expected, after moving here over ten years ago, that it would take so long to see anything of this revolutionary magnitude. The debate over Occupy's message, its means, and its virtue is to me distinct from its extraordinary visual wealth. Music and lyrics by Joe Nolan | http://joenolan.com Filmed and edited by H.

      Domestic protest movements and encampments have usually been the subjects of external surveillance and mapping efforts rather than the originators and controllers of such technology. By utilizing simple and readily accessible equipment (small weather balloons, homemade harnesses, camera phones, and fishing reels) wide angle aerial surveys for metric gathering and situational awareness are democratized and made easily and rapidly deployable.

Independent Journalist, Photojournalist -- Humanitarian - All Rights Reserved The Occupy movement has spread across the nation in many different cities throughout the United States. The movement consists of people coming together with a common cause (to be heard), forming Occupy communities which are governed by the People, expressing their thoughts and feelings and wanting to work together for change to make the world a better place for everyone, “not 1%, not 99%, but 100%”. ~Kathy Roberts~ Bringing you Worldwide News and Events

                      A WEEKEND WITH OCCUPY DC 'A Weekend with Occupy DC' is a short film documenting some of the activities of early Occupy DC, offering only a glimpse of the daily organizing, direct action, and community building that continue to enliven the Occupy Wall Street Movement. I shot the footage for the film as I lived and worked at McPherson Square in early October 2011. This project was filmed and is presented in solidarity with Occupiers in DC and elsewhere as a tool for constructive dialog and movement building. Shot with one camera over three days, the film includes marches through the streets of DC, excerpts from general assemblies, a direct action training, street theater performance, an Occupy dance party, and the organization of the occupation at McPherson Square. Apart from being an archive of early Occupy DC and a celebration of grassroots social action, I hope the film inspires debate about waging struggle, occupying space, anti-oppression, and community building. Thanks to all who appear in the film and all who are continuing to occupy. While filming, I strove to get consent of all individuals who appear before camera. If you appear in 'A Weekend with Occupy DC' and wish to be taken out of the film, please contact me.
