    I was there and I know how badly it failed. If it was the largest protest in history and it failed, it doesn’t speak too well to the efficacy of protest.

      It’s hard to wake people up, make them aware..  From where I stand, it looks like these protests are doing a huge job of getting people to at least think about the situation, to acknowledge it as real..

      If anything, it showed us that a day’s protest is insufficient, it’s too easy to ignore. That’s why Protests have become Occupations. These can’t be forgotten about the next morning.

    great at sad! So many people but still, the War took place… are we really that powerless?

    You have to remember that the Bush Administration chose to distort the reality around them – referring to Feb 15th as a merely focus group – and of course, the media let them get away with it.

    Looks like a good project though – and there was certainly much media produced around Feb 15th. I recall working on a live satellite feed for FSTV from NYC and just after, another program for which we had video content submitted for a dozen countries.

    I’m excited/interested to see the documentary, but personally I prefer to contribute money via Kickstarter to something that doesn’t already involve high-profile and -value names. One way or another, this will get its funding no matter what – whereas the money raised by popularizing some talented nobodies’ project could be make or break for their continued production.

    In the U.S. people can choose to support this film via a tax-deductible donation through Film Forum.  See
