Social movements documentary in the works: The Activists

Following Rima’s post about Time’s Person of the Year being named The Protestor, Daily Disruption readers will be interested to know of a documentary film project in the works called The Activists: War, Peace, and Politics in the Streets.  A social movements colleague and friend – Michael Heaney, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan – is heavily involved in its making.  He and filmmaker-journalist Melody Weinstein are raising money through Kickstarter to get the film to the finish line.  The Kickstarter site, which includes video previews, is here for interested eyes and potentially interested wallets.  This film is bound to be an important look into the lives and personal experiences of activists in the anti-war movement over the course of the last decade.
