Has not done spontaneous.
This was community organized.
I was an explosive look at the explosively explosive new documentary occupy unmasked featuring a dearly departed friend of red -- and bright part.
The guerrillas released in theaters on Friday and promises to shine a light on all the criminal activity with in the movement that the lame stream media -- -- said it refuses to report on.
With me tonight -- -- -- producer David bossy and writer director Steve Bannon.
Thanks for coming guys let me start with this the most generic of all questions what can lead you to -- this -- You know it was we watched watched -- I was hoping Steve lynch.
And while I -- I all the -- Hi all they -- in the money yeah yeah I -- yeah defer defer to they got actually -- really got his idea to show how it's probably best actually I watched the Occupy Movement grow just like everyone else even I was that we're talking about it last September October.
Indiana picked up the phone when I decided to make a movie and I called injured right -- the one guy in America who followed.
The Occupy Movement from its beginning newest georgians -- the seedy underside of it and really was the linchpin from the conservative movement side of -- to force people to talk about it and and acknowledge that these -- this is in a dangerous organization and Anderson let's make this -- -- a bunch of dirty hippies and palaces hit.
I park Andrew got it right away Soviet instrument to change the conversation well I guess I don't want to ask you what you take an -- was before you set -- to -- the movies.
We're carried over the prospect yeah.
What was his what was -- involvement with this how how did how did you guys work with and you know I who.
From the moment I talked I talked him on the phone the first first time he was engaged he.
He knew what occupy was it what it consisted of and the danger posed to America.
To -- the danger posed to the free market system to capitalism and to our very democracy.
So he really was the driving force when Steve when when Steve but I decided.
Thankfully to make the film with -- house.
You know who -- Andrew knew exactly what he wanted and he brought that passion so he's the host and narrator this film.
And and his vision of how how this -- -- used it to change the narrative away from debt deficits to fairness.
You know inequality class warfare so how do you look at the director of the movie -- I can't imagine trying to direct right I just can't even imagine you know -- -- our business partners -- actually -- almost on the C -- company the chairman and Andrew and I would report a bright -- we would have huge fights.
All the time about a range of stuff and Andrew I think that's what we we disagree a lot about this but he had a certain vision and you know it's just -- kind of channeling that energy.
The film -- that that famous.
C -- sure Andrews yelling stop raking in the people's right when he did that and people said hey we don't want -- to go on -- on the web site -- -- I think we have the end of the film.
You agree with -- yeah and of course we you know we're we're obviously very proud of this from the very sad at the same time Andrew.
Was the force in this film is the force of this moment and anybody who knew Andrew and and was around him his energy and passion he brought was second to none.
And of course he died just after we -- Completely filling I was Syria actively -- yes yes we and then at the film -- principal -- -- let me -- if it's so you went to a bunch of different cities too much different occupies.
What -- -- the most laundry keep protesters flats in Oakland Al Portland Denver that's -- went to the Washington DC but Oakland by far.
Was the hardest core of our -- all this -- from what you see here is what looks like the French revolution -- we -- this is vulgarity.
This is violence we put the camera right into the pit in and you see stuff you didn't see on the issue -- -- on fox.
The most violent by far the I think is open that's when they burned down right -- trying to burn down part of the city.
And they really went after the -- was there any city where they were actually went sort of well behaved.
We -- this.
It's everybody because that's when they're wide view that -- not do that I think the most important question of all this is what we -- -- -- the hottest protesters packed.
That that would be none I'm mission -- even if -- -- got hot and this is not a -- grade on the curve.
If I have to relative to the -- -- -- that much it would deprive the New York aren't what when you try to not seeing.
I don't know a lot yeah but but I would drive to what when you when you -- -- -- like this what are the biggest.
Obstacles that you run across -- -- just the level of violence and in your putting cameramen.
Into situations where they don't know what's gonna happen they get caught up in the police.
You know obviously to -- through all of the video you see him through the film you see the amount of violence with the people throwing Molotov cocktails mean this is serious things.
Going on that you wouldn't think you would be seeing in American cities this looks like a Third World country.
What what would you tell the protesters like to.
-- were you up front really chaotic and movie that's gonna expose you guys -- first we would say pick back I think it's just criticism but.
Now we would know that that's not wolf what Steve was able to do was find folks who -- inside the camps in and be able to provide video because only through looking like one of them were you able to gain access right.
So besieged -- just like not.
-- for a couple months.
-- what anybody you know -- and anything before you take up any any scenes in the movie that might.
I think the c.'s aggressive price to one middle class -- -- -- level ball security and violence and particularly for the heroes in this of the police in the first responders.
The amount of this concept called -- in which anonymous dosing get your badge number next thing you know your kids' school.
Everything about your life is on line.
That the bravery of the first responders in the police I think a lot of -- have to go wow I never knew that the Occupy Movement anonymous came after of that parking.
Think there -- a lot of people look -- libertarians -- myself who who.
-- sort of hoping when this thing started.
Had maybe some hope that this would be a good thing somewhat populist movement yet -- -- -- I think -- be -- -- -- be very helpful to the dialogue that's not Zach this film.
Is about how that was used by this group of anarchist union types of hardcore revolutionaries that really at the bottom up in the mainstream media wants to equate it to -- party and occupies the one and -- and they're nowhere near this time.
Well thanks a lot guys David bossy Steve not in the film is -- -- -- now playing at select theaters and you can order it on demand starting later today Tuesday.
-- get a break coming up now.
