About the film: History of an Occupation is a new documentary from Al Jazeera that looks at how Occupy Wall Street went from a small group of New York protesters to a broad people's movement in the U.S. The film follows key Occupy organizers from the movement's early days through a harsh winter and violent evictions across the country, and into a spring of revitalized actions. Among the key activists and thinkers from the movement featured in the film are Boots Riley, Max Rameau, David Graeber, and many others. Featuring a discussion with Al Jazeera producer Jordan Flaherty and local Occupy organizers Gahiji Barrow and Kezia Kamenetz.
