REGENERATION: The Politics of Apathy and Activism
"A timely documentary that takes an in-depth look at the reasons behind the Occupy movement, and the current state of social activism in the U.S." Indiewire
"A well-rounded documentary. Deconstruct[s] the way that people, and especially teens, absorb information from the media." Common Sense Media
Ryan Gosling narrates this engrossing film about social activism, the forces that galvanized the Occupy movement, and a new generation of young people coming to terms with a rapidly changing world. Mixing personal testimony with expert analysis, the film combines observations from suburban high school students, progressive activists, and young conservatives with insights from leading political and cultural commentators to provide a nuanced look at the myriad challenges facing young Americans. The result is as personal as it is political, as much a portrait of power and resistance as of a generation finding its way in uncertain times.
