Toward the end of last year ::: http://vimeo.com/39156555

My partner in crime Martyna and I filmed, quite a few actions that extended form the Occupy Wall Street movement, namely the student protests and teach-ins.
One of these was organized by Students United For A Free Cuny in which Louis Reyes Rivera, (poet, lecturer, activist, educator, freedom fighter among other things) passed on some of his wisdom from the 1969 Student Take Over of City College to a new generation of young activists.

Rivera has since passed, earlier this month…this film is dedicated to his memory.
Perhaps his words will resonate with you.
Enjoy.

On a filmic note :::
I just watched Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Distant - apparently available in its entirety on youtube though i don’t recommend you watch it this way.
The cinematography is mesmerizing (and youtube degrades it).
In watching, in its meditative pace, the viewer feels sucked in - enters another’s life completely.

But…
What I was really inspired by this week was a film by Srdjan Keca, whom I met at the Berlinale Talent Campus last month. His A Letter To Dad is premiering at Full Frame next month. Brilliantly and sensitively crafted… transformative.

Catch it, somewhere.

We the people have found our voice.

If it’s our sharing that makes us powerful, why return to normal?
This life is more worth living than the one we left behind.
(Leaflet, Solidarity March with Occupy Wall Street, October 5, 2011)

How do our voices of dissent encounter each other?
Do we really want to merge our raging cacophony into a unified political agenda?
What if the voice of the people is always in a mode of becoming?
Welcome to the hidden track of Occupy Wall Street:
We are discovering new ways in which our desires can resonate together.
This space is our sonogram of potential.

I was reading a fantastic article on Alain Resnais’s Night and Fog "Documenting the Ineffable" by Sandy Flitterman-Lewis…i very much recommend it…the closing paragraph included a quote from theologian Abraham Joshua Heschel:::

"be sure that every little deed counts, that very word has power, and that we can, everyone, do our share to redeem the world…build a life as if it was a work of art…and remember that life is a celebration.”

…beautiful.

Martyna and I hit the Wall Street area on Wednesday and Thursday to document the events of the occupation.

Please forward our video to likeminded people via email, facebook, twitter - and make the voices of dissent circulate.
