What happens when growing economic inequality in America bears heavily on its people? The new short film "99%," directed by Celik Kayalar, founder and director of the Film Acting Bay Area school, asks viewers to contemplate that question. At the center of the fictional story is Anne Page, a struggling young schoolteacher who is searching for answers of her own, while the Occupy Movement looms large as a backdrop. “We are all Anne Page," Kayalar says. The film also features Noam Chomsky and film and TV actor Carl Lumbly.
