‘Occupy Unmasked’ film to premiere in Phoenix

Sep 21, 2012, 6:33 AM | Updated: 6:33 am

PHOENIX — A new film that promises to expose the vulgarity and violence behind the Occupy Wall Street movement is opening in Valley theaters Friday.

Stephen Bannon, the writer and director of Occupy Unmasked, said the film will give a closer look at what really happened in Occupy Wall Street camps across the country.

“This is the untold story of the Occupy movement,” he said. “It talks about the violence, the vulgarity, the anarchists that really run the Occupy movement and why it’s such an important thing for people to understand because of the intimidation factor it can have on the citizenry.”

Bannon said the film will show that the Occupy movement, which celebrated its one-year anniversary this week, is far from over.

“The Occupy movement is just in the first inning,” he said.

The film features the late conservative icon Andrew Breitbart.

Along with Phoenix, the film is premiering in Dallas, Denver and Orange County, Calif., because of the areas’ strong Tea Party presence.
