Occupy Love poses an unusual question as the basis of its investigation into the motivations that drove the Occupy Movement: “How are the economic and ecological crises we are facing today a great love story?” According to the film’s website, the purpose of this documentary is “to both reflect and catalyze this global awakening to a world that works for all life, a world of economic and ecological justice.”
To this end, the film provides numerous entry points into being part of this global awakening by interviewing people from all walks of life, young and old, who took part in the Occupy Movement. Of special interest are the voices of aboriginal elders who help explain what, at first, seems like an unlikely and radical premise for the film, transforming the question about the economic and ecological crises as a love story into the tested but often ignored wisdom of indigenous cultures and their relationship with Mother Earth. Many creative artists are featured in the film as well, including the performance artist Reverend Billy and his gospel choir from the “Church of Stop Shopping” - not to be missed for both their musical power and political humour.
