#whilewewatch discovers the #OWS media team who had no fear of a critical city government, big corporations, hostile police, or a lagging main stream media to tell their story. Through rain, snow, grueling days, sleeping on concrete; they pumped out exhilarating ideas to the world. Fueled with little money, they relied on the power of Twitter, texting, Wi-Fi, posters, Tumblr, live streams, YouTube, Facebook, dramatic marches, drumbeats and chants. We witness a new dawn with the power of social media.

#whilewewatch - Director's Note
Zuccotti Park was loud, dirty, wet, cold and exhilaratingly alive with passion and energy. Intelligence, imagination, information and raw emotion ruled every second! I observed the birth a line that will go down in history. "We are the 99%." The people in this film are genuinely decent. They all are immensely bright. They are kind, tough and loaded with the belief, this is what being an American citizen is about. - Kevin Breslin Director
