Rise Like Lions: OWS and the Seeds of Revolution (2011)

Scott Noble, who also produced Lifting the Veil, pulls together a combination of internet and original footage to create the first feature-length documentary on Occupy Wall St, telling the story and motivation behind the movement in its own words. It is a treatise to the beautiful awakening of human heart and hope that has arisen in the American people, capturing the imagination and dreams of a new generation's struggle to create a better world.

"
Rise like Lions after slumber 
In unvanquishable number - 
Shake your chains to earth like dew 
Which in sleep had fallen on you - 
Ye are many - they are few.' 

- Percy Bysshe Shelley
