Peaceful Protest
Occupy Los Angeles
Review by Ross Anthony

This short documentary pulls from the almost anonymous masses of this every-person movement a handful of individuals who are given ample time, not short trite sound bites, to convey their well-thought-out points of view. These interviewers are passionate and well spoken and remind us that the movement isn't anonymous, but populated by beautifully different individuals. These non-violent-minded, constructive-toned, interviews are a refreshing change from the negative images and words that mainstream media often pieces together.

The title intro is rickety, and some shots are a bit shaky, but for those looking for more insight into the people who stood in the midst of Occupy -- this is well worth a look.
