Special Thank You to OccupyWallSt.org, OccupyTogether.org and Occupy.com for their cooperation.
As the film unfolds, we witness a new dawn with the power of social media. The #OccupyWallStreet media team had no fear of a critical city government, big corporations, hostile police, or a lagging mainstream media to tell their story. Through rain, snow, grueling days, sleeping on concrete; they pump out exhilarating ideas to the world. Fueled with little money, they rely on the power of Twitter, texting, Wi-Fi, posters, Tumblr, live streams, YouTube, Facebook, dramatic marches, drumbeats and chants. #whilewewatch was the vision of Australian Producer Mike Vanderfield and produced by his company 8docos.
“Zuccotti Park was loud, dirty, wet, cold and exhilaratingly alive with passion and energy,” stated director Kevin Breslin. “Intelligence, imagination, information and raw emotion ruled every second! I witnessed the birth of a line that will go down in history, ‘We are the 99%.’"
“The people in this film are genuinely decent,” added Breslin. “They all are immensely bright. They are kind, tough and loaded with the belief that this is what being an American citizen is about.”
