OccuNation: Occupy Boston’s Homegrown Documentary

Two of our very own occupiers, Mike Hipson and David Lehnert, have been working on a feature-length documentary film about the Occupy Movement. Mike, a member of our community wellness team, and David, a member of our media team, have both lived at the Dewey Square Encampment and have been great assets to our community.

The movie is called OccuNation, and principal photography will be going on until the Summer. Mike and David will be travelling the country filming local occupations across the United States, from big cities like Boston and New York to small town America, exploring themes like localism and social justice activism.

It’s a huge project to undertake, and the OccuNation team just launched their project on Kickstarter, the same fundraising site that the Boston Occupier received its financing from. If you would like to learn more about OccuNation visit the website here, and if you would like to contribute to the project, click here.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could contribute to this amazing project, but if not, that’s okay! We’d love it if you followed us on Twitter, liked us on Facebook, and check out our website every now and then!
