Occupy LA: Scenes From The New Revolution

Prepare yourself for a journey through the Occupy L.A. encampment as seen through the eyes of journalist Sam Slovick, who narrates the proceedings like he's in a noir thriller. Slovick refers to the Occupy Movement as "the Civil Rights Movement on crank, the Sixties peace movement in a "V for Vendetta" mask with a blunt and the devil's defiance," and Occupy L.A. as a "largely dismissed, mostly misinterpreted orphan child of the Occupy Movement."

Prepare yourself for a journey through the Occupy L.A. encampment as seen through the eyes of journalist Sam Slovick, who narrates the proceedings like he's in a noir thriller. Slovick refers to the Occupy Movement as "the Civil Rights Movement on crank, the Sixties peace movement in a "V for Vendetta" mask with a blunt and the devil's defiance," and Occupy L.A. as a "largely dismissed, mostly misinterpreted orphan child of the Occupy Movement."

"Ultimately, Occupy LA was and is a relatively high functioning, reasonably organized productive community, but you won't read that in the paper," Slovick said. "That’s why I camped at City Hall for the better part of two months and shot the series. I wanted to meet the people and tell the real story of the American class war in Los Angeles."

Slovick produced this film - the first in a five-part series that aired on takepart.com in January - with the help of Slake, a highly acclaimed literary journal based in Los Angeles. "Occupy Los Angeles: Scenes From a Revolution" portrays a movement that refuses to go down without one hell of a fight.
