Occupy Wall Street

This short film by award winning documentary film maker Andrew Jenks is an example of the reflexive/performative positions by how he makes the filming process known by illustrating the views of different individuals involved in the movement. He is involved with every aspect involved in the documentary. Both in front and behind the camera barriers are crossed.

Joey Viola's insight:

A great film, about a very lucid man. I think in documentaries one of the hardest things to do is to represent a person unbiasly, that is, how they are in reality. I believe Sean Dunne did a great job of presenting this man for who he is good and bad, in reality.

Joey Viola's insight:

In a world were surf and other boarding videos are widespread and neccessary to gain any sponsors for the individual. Many of them lack any quality or artistic design. Epokhe breaks this mold with a very interesting and more artistic look at the art of surfing.
