Film Premiere: #WhileWeWatch

The Foreign Press Association is holding a free screening of the documentary #whilewewatched. The Occupy Wall Street movement has generated a whole new brand of interactive, participatory media, most notably live streaming news from Zuccotti Park to the world. Kevin Breslin’s riveting documentary captures this media revolution at its conception, showing how cell phones affixed to laptops can create global social change. We witness the OWS media team taking on city government, big corporations, and police to get their vital message out. As director Breslin notes “Zuccotti Park was loud, dirty, wet, cold and exhilaratingly alive with passion and energy. Intelligence, imagination, information and raw motion ruled every second!” Breslin’s film is a transfixing testament to that insurgent spirit. Key members of the OWS media team will speak after the screening.
