Occupy: The Movie provides a sensational focus on the social movement that set up shop at Wall Street’s front door. Occupy succeeded in captivating the collective consciousness and providing hope for positive change, but its visibility vanished as quickly as it appeared, leaving questions of its effectiveness in its wake. Tackling the complexity of how the movement manifested and providing cogent context to what caused its genesis, Corey Ogilvie presents a clear and compelling account of the Zuccotti Park settlement without getting lost in empty slogans, violent conflicts or proselytizing activists. Featuring key interviews with Kalle Lasn (Adbusters), philosopher Cornel West, journalist Chris Hedges and leading organizers from the Occupy Wall Street movement, Occupy: The Movie isn’t propaganda for the cause, but an expert analysis of one of the biggest American social movements since the civil rights era.

With Her Beloved Diego, Mexico, Nickolas and the Masterpieces She Painted From Her Bed: Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween. 

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
