Activism & Fiction: Can fantasy tell the truth?

A new documentary asks a key question about cultural organizing: Can fantasy and fiction tell a more truthful story about our political experience than what's being said in the 'real world' of media and politics? To answer that, Spanish filmmakers Leónidas Martín and Núria Campabadal turn to  several 'real life' fictional characters who would know, from the legendary Superbarrio of Mexico City, to the comic-book character Unemployed Man, to Reverend Billy. Many Occupy-related projects are included, from Anonymous to Occupy Comics, to the Occupy Ninjas.

Note: The documentary is in Spanish, but many of the interviews are in English.
