What would a world look like that had a culture and an economic system that placed human need above corporate greed, and how do we bring that world into being?

Dennis Trainor, Jr., the writer and director of "American Autumn: an occudoc," does not care what we call this new world. “Call it Socialism, if you are not afraid of buzzwords, call it Real Democracy Now, call it Chunky-Monkey-Cherry Garcia for all I care. All I know is the world needs to change radically, it needs to change dramatically, and it needs to change fast. This documentary is an invitation for the viewer to participate in that positive change.”

Shot on the front lines and meeting spaces of the Occupy Movement in NYC, Boston, and Washington, D.C. from the earliest days through the end of January 2012 and written, directed and produced by activist, writer and filmmaker Dennis Trainor, Jr. "American Autumn: an Occudoc" is an inside-looking-out view of the Occupy Movement.

I see some friendly familiar faces in this clip, Michael Moore, Bernie Sanders, and Lee Camp. Enjoy the trailer, the film is scheduled for release in June.
