American Autumn: an Occudoc set for World Premiere & Party Tuesday, June 26th in Brooklyn, NY​




​Brooklyn, NYC - On Tuesday, June 26 2012, American Autumn: an Occudoc, a feature length documentary on the occupy movement written, produced and directed by Dennis Trainor Jr will launch with a world premiere and party at the Indie Screen Cinema and Bar in Williamsburg Brooklyn (289 Kent Ave).

The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7PM and the first 50 people get a free American Autumn dvd and a free copy of Lee Camp’s new comedy CD PepperSpray the Tears Away.

ABOUT THE FILM


“Greed, to take back the popular phrase,” says writer/ director Dennis Trainor, Jr “is not good. It is a homicidal force.”

Shot on the front lines and meeting spaces of the Occupy movement in NYC, Boston, and Washington, DC from the earliest days through the end of January 2012 American Autumn: an Occudoc is an inside looking out view of the occupy movement.

With interviews and insight from key organizers, thinkers and activists including Medea Benjamin, David Degraw, Dr. Margaret Flowers, Lee Camp, Naomi Klein, Nathan Schneider, Ashley Sanders, Vlad Teichberg, Sgt. Shamar Thomas, Dr. Cornel West, Kevin Zeese and many more, writer/ director Dennis Trainor Jr weaves commentary and a fearless style that often puts the viewer right between police and protesters. 

The film includes an original score by Goldi, a member of the OWS music Rebel group and Guitarmy, with additional original music created by Mike Lawrence-Yanicelli.


The legendary punk band FUGAZI supplied additional songs.

AJ Russo served as the Associate producer, co-editor, and created all of the graphics; James Russo served as the audio designer. 
 

Dennis Trainor, Jr. is currently the host of the web series of Acronym TV (on hiatus until the documentary is finished).  He has been writing and producing editorial video commentary since 2007, publishing over 800 videos during that span that have garnered over 30 million views on youtube alone. He formally published under the alias “Davis Fleetwood” and while doing so was an embedded youtube personality/ media advisor on the staff of Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 Presidential campaign, giving him the distinction as the first video blogger to be employed by a Presidential candidate.

American Autumn: an occudoc is his full-length field documentary.
