Nobody Can Predict The Moment of Revolution

Occupy Wall Street #1

[8 minutes, New York 2011]
In collaboration with Iva Rad

Subtitles: Danish, Malayalam, Russian, Spanish (choose language on universal subtitles), German and Japanese

Iva and I, shot this video during the 5th and 6th day of the occupation of Liberty Square. The Occupy Wall Street movement was inpired by recent uprisings in Spain, Greece, Egypt, and Tunisia which most of us were following online. Despite of the initial media blackout by corporate media, yahoo’s attempt to censor e-mail communication and incredible police brutality, the occupation has been growing in numbers and spreading to other cities in the US and abroad.

This video went viral within few days. We received video responses from all over the world, including Berlin and Belgrad!
