ABOUT THE FILM
Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough – the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.
The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm.
It features some of the world’s key visionaries and movement leaders, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks, Charles Eisenstein, Judy Rebick, Clayton Thomas-Muller, Marina Sitrin, Cleo Reese, Roshi Joan Halifax, Rupert Sheldrake, Rebecca Solnit, Don Tapscott, Reverend Billy, James O’Dea, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Pancho Ramos, Elisabet Sathouris, Drew Dellinger, and Malik Rhassan.
