The MAC presents All Day All Week: An Occupy Wall Street Story
The MAC will present a screening of the film All Day All Week: An Occupy Wall Street Story by Marisa Holmes, as part of its current exhibition, "Working Groups" by Carolyn Sortor and Michael A. Morris.
The documentary film tells the story of the Occupy movement. In 2011, occupations of public spaces were taking place across the globe, as people rose up in response to the global financial crisis and for real democracy. Marisa Holmes was centrally involved in the Occupy movement and shot footage from its beginning through the eviction of the OWS camp from the heart of the world's most important financial center. Her beautiful and moving film gives an intimate view of aspects ignored by traditional media, shedding light on the movement's highs and lows as well as on next steps.
After the screening, artist Marisa Holmes will be present via video call for live Q&A.
On Saturday, February 23, "Working Groups" artists Carolyn Sortor and Michael A. Morris, together with Janeil Engelstad and Vicki Meek, invite the public to join them for a conversation about the exhibition, libraries, art, and activism.
