"This documentary is an invitation to you to participate in positive change," reads one of the title cards in "American Autumn: an Occudoc," which was shot on the front lines and meeting spaces of the Occupy Movement in New York, Boston and Washington, DC, from its earliest days through the end of January 2012. ‚Äč With interviews and insight from key organizers, thinkers and activists including Medea Benjamin, David Degraw, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Lee Camp, Naomi Klein, Nathan Schneider, Ashley Sanders, Vlad Teichberg, Sgt. Shamar Thomas, Dr. Cornel West, Kevin Zeese and many more, writer and director Dennis Trainor, Jr weaves commentary and a fearless style that often puts the viewer right between the police and the protesters.

The film includes an original score by Goldi, a member of the OWS Guitarmy, and the legendary punk band FUGAZI supplied additional songs.
