“Occupy Wall Street: A Holiday Survival Guide”

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) December 19, 2011 — Thousands of Occupy Wall Street sympathizers will soon return home and be asked to explain themselves and their cause to the ones they love.

Goldenbear Productions has released “Occupy Wall Street: A Holiday Survival Guide,” a comedic short that simplifies the complexities of Occupy Wall Street. This video equips occupiers and sympathizers with a framework for talking about the movement.

The story is set around a family holiday dinner in which a twenty-something addresses and diffuses the criticisms of his suspicious but loving family. The producers are inviting commentary and encouraging a broader conversation via political blogs and websites.

Using humor and metaphor, the producers at Goldenbear explain how, in the current political and economic system, the deck has been stacked, so that most Americans can’t even afford to play at the table.
