I have recently become a reader and contributor to the doculink.com listserv. I am inspired by some of the “doculinker” filmmakers who spend their nights downtown with their cameras to document the situation, at the risk of arrest.
Other are being told by filmmakers in many parts of the world, beyond downtown LA–stories about struggle by the people against oppressive authority. Their stories are vastly different than the ones I read or hear in the mainstream media.
A good read is: Occupy Wall Street: Can Filmmaking Website Unify the Movement?
