Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing Sam Slovick, a valued member of Occupy Los Angeles. Listed below is his contribution to a movement that has a lot of "splainin' to do".
While Occupy Los Angeles media is still in it's beginnings, the work of an autonomous media maker such as Slovick, should be just enough to bring the world up to speed on the matter of the Occupy Movement: We are the 99%.
With Sam Slovick's "Scenes of a Revolution" he defines who we are, what we are, why we are and where we are now. Thank you Sam, we need this. -ydlv
Scenes from the New Revolution is a five-part documentary series written and directed by journalist Sam Slovick, whose research into Occupy Wall Street led to his living in a tent at City Hall in Los Angeles alongside the 99% movement for the better part of two months.
Slovick accessed Occupy Los Angeles at ground level, illuminating stories and faces that were either overlooked or misrepresented by the mainstream media. Told from the center of the year's biggest story, Slovick articulates the global movement through interviews with its activists, footage from the inner sanctum, and stories from its foot soldiers, bringing the sometimes-chaotic picture of Occupy Los Angeles into focus.
Scenes from the New Revolution was produced with the help of Slake, a highly acclaimed literary journal based in Los Angeles. A companion piece to the series will appear in the journal's fourth issue.
