As zombies threaten to consume all that’s left of our spectacular society, B Media’s “Occupation Nation” slams the new era of global uprising into an hour-long episode of remixed shorts that explore the philosophical roots of the recent movement of 99%.
The mycelia network that has spread across the world is deeply rooted in historical precedents that have the potential to turn toxic assets and discarded derivatives into new communities where shared vision and collective decision making empowers us all. The film calls on our collective conscience to remember the Oaxacan teacher strikes and the Bonus Army, and it explores this new technological globalrevolution by riffing on the work of video ninjas everywhere. Darryl Mitchell and David Graeber’s dialectics break down the bricks of Wall Street, PeeWee Herman interviews Ema Goldman about the black bloc, Mr. Bean gets peppersprayed, and Obama is mic-checked in his Disney World as the police protect the smart ALEC’s running the show.
Special halftime appearance by Clint Eastwood, and Jackson’ wardrobe malfunction.
