Program 24: Forward

  • Cinema Village 22 E 12th St New York, NY, 10003 United States

Self-financed with a $1000 budget as an art experiment by Dusan Harminc and Matt Mullins, 'Forward' (Wisconsin's state motto) is an activist-level view of the uprising that swept state senators out of office, triggered the third governor recall election in American history, and inspired the Occupy movement that swept the country. This film uses the reflections of people involved in the protests of winter 2011 to show what galvanized non-radicals into a movement that quickly drew international attention to Madison, Wisconsin for political action unlike anything seen in America since the Vietnam War. 78 Minutes
