Occupy Wall Street Impromptu Flash Mob Screening Hurricane Sandy Film
"In classic Occupy fashion, the 20-minute film, “Occupy Sandy: A Human Response to the New Realities of Climate Change,” was projected onto a wall above the service station’s gas pumps by a vehicle called the Illuminator, a mobile media center built this spring by a crew of Brooklyn artists and with the patronage of Ben Cohen, the ice cream tycoon.
The gala event — if one can speak that way of an occasion whose precise location was announced by text and Twitter message only 15 minutes before it began — was an attempt to place both Hurricane and Occupy Sandy into the context of climate change."
