About Films For the Occupation:
Rooftop Films, in partnership with several of New York City’s finest film venues, will bring a series of four film programs to audiences from December 13-16. As the Occupy encampments are being dismantled across the country and as mainstream media and politics threaten to go on with business as usual, having conversations that question our economic and political system is all the more important. “Films for the Occupation” intends to showcase film and multimedia works that provoke or continue conversations that challenge old ways of thinking and encourage new ones. Curated by Rooftop Films and Bryce Renninger.
