Revolutionaries around the world are uniting to fight for freedom and human rights, sometimes successfully, sometimes not, but collectively they find the courage to overcome oppression from ruling parties and fight for change. From international “Occupy Wall Street” protests to large-scale revolutions in Egypt, Syria, and African countries including Tunisia, Guinea and Libya, the themes in Ghost Dancer allude to these contemporary political freedom-fighters and rebellions. The talk-back discussions will provide the Ghost Dancer audience an opportunity to explore the meanings of these themes as related to these contemporary revolutions.
As part of their "40 Days of Humanity" campaign to raise awareness of revolution around the world, the Ghost Dancer team took to Occupy Wall Street to ask "How far will you go?" For a video summary visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGlsYR63N7E&feature=youtu.be.
