In Person: Filmmaker Liza Béar
Music by Brian O'Haire  Poetry by Christopher Moylan
Since Day One, September 17, 2011, Liza Béar has filmed the modus operandi of Occupy Wall
Street at Zuccotti Park and at other New York locales. Shot over a 7 month period, these 65
minidocs or situationist videos combine dialogue betweenand withan eclectic range of OWS
participants, members of the community and the security forces. The style is a mixture of verité
filmmaking and a more proactive, direct cinema approach. The aim has been to dispel mass media
stereotyping and facile judgments. To be screened tonight: OWS Day 5: "Corporations Can't Cry";
"Zuccotti Gets Surreal"; "Occupy the SEC: Enforce the Volcker Rule," "Occupy the Courts: Foley
Square Rally to End Corporate Personhood"; OWSJ29: "Murder By SpreadSheet; Health Care
for the 99%"; OWS M28 "The Trap of Violence" and others.
Liza Béar is a New York-based writer, filmmaker and media activist. After arriving in New York in 1968, she cofounded the avant-garde
artists' magazine Avalanche 1970-1976 with Willoughby Sharp and was a co-producer of Communications Update, a public access
artists' tv show that also dealt with information politics. Her films have been shown at The Museum of Modern Art, the Edinburgh Film
Festival, the Sao Paulo Biennial, and most recently at Torpedo Kunsthalle, Oslo, Macka Art Gallery, Istanbul and the ICA London. She
is the author of "Beyond the Frame: Dialogues with World Filmmakers" (Praeger, 2007).
