We're having at free screening of our film on Thursday, September 11th @ 5p at the Roxie Theater in SF (Mission 3117 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103)

Patrick Lovell is an accidental filmmaker/activist who was in the midst of living his American Dream the day the American Dream died. Patrick and his family would find themselves caught in the avalanche of the 2008 Housing Collapse and eventually lose their home to foreclosure. Lovell figured out a way to make a film using his story as the entry point to broader truth about how America's middle class has collapsed, how and why. Lovell and his team shot the film in 2011 and attended 23 Occupy Wall Street encampments covering 7,500 miles ending up in NYC's Zucotti the day the NYPD came down hard. Occupy would become a supporting character to reveal that America is corrupt, defunct and unsustainable, but more importantly, how we can turn the tables on the dark forces that are undermining the American ideal to reboot the American Dream. This film is all things 2014 mid-terms starring Bernie Sanders, Van Jones, James Hansen, Jeremy Rifkin, Mary Boyle, Jeffry Sachs, Rocky Anderson and Music by Michael Franti and a slew of ordinary Americans rising to become extraordinary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IeHz7vpFBk
