Inspired by the uprisings of the Arab Spring, filmmaker Rodrigo Dorfman embarks on an exploration of his roots in 1970s Chile, where as a child he witnessed the first peaceful socialist revolution in history. Fascinated by the transformative power of art, Dorfman uncovers the power and legacy of his father’s controversial book How to Read Donald Duck, which the military junta burned and banned for exposing Disney’s hidden capitalist messages. When Occupy Wall Street explodes in New York City, Dorfman, camera in hand, begins a new quest -- for the spirit of the Chilean Revolution in the euphoria of the Occupy Movement. A story of courage, defeat, and resistance, this trans-American film examines whether revolutionary consciousness can awaken our imaginations in a world seduced, and flattened, by one ideology, capitalism.
