The bubble and other stories from ‘Occupy Montréal’, 2012

Single channel film with sound 9 mins.
This is a Preview of the first 30 seconds of the film.

The bubble and other stories from ‘Occupy Montréal’ shows the celebration of people who tried to change the world through the ‘Occupy Movement’.  This work presents stories about the everydayness and practicalities of people living together in a protest environment.

The film presents diverse subjects such as the indigenous homeless, graffiti and what the movement means to some of the ‘Occupiers’.  The work also shows how relationships are built across people from varying backgrounds who strengthen the unity of the movement by singing and dancing together, and sharing in the making of beautiful ‘bubbles’ using the wind and a simple silken cloth that envelops their bodies.

This project includes a series of photographs.
