Occupied Cascadia is a documentary film both journalistic and
expressionistic. Exploring the emerging understanding of bioregionalism
within the lands and waters of the Northeast Pacific Rim, the filmmakers
interweave intimate landscape portraits with human voices both ideological
and indigenous. Stories from the land contrast critique of dominant
culture, while an embrace of the radical unknown informs a re-birthed and
growing culture of resistance. Filming began during the outset of the
populist “Occupy” movement, and finished by joining the voices seeking to
re-contextualize popular revolt within our life-world as a movement to
decolonize, un-occupy, and re-inhabit the living Earth through deep
understanding and identification with our specific bioregions (literally
“Life-Place”)
