Radicalized2015

  • 3.0
A revolutionary film about the new season of political resistance in Los Angeles. RADICALIZED is the definitive voice of a generation documentary film, crafted from thousands of hours of footage shot over a three year period. Ideology meets reality and collides with the powers that be, as articulated through the inner voices and external lives of a millennial anarchist collective near downtown L.A. This film opens an intimate window into the emerging consciousness of the gritty incubator of the collective's apartment, where fifteen people deconstruct the present to create a better future. All have given up a lot to participate in the movement; personal space, jobs, education, family and "old-world" friends. Targeted by law enforcement, repeatedly arrested, intimidated and sometimes beaten, only to be further radicalized, this film contains graphic scenes of police violence. The footage follows the collective as they organize and engage in a seemingly endless series of political actions, street protests and marches, ranging from direct actions against big banks to the more recent protests against police violence. Fueled by Occupy Wall Street, the tent encampment at City Hall in October 2011 was the point of departure for the creation of a network of alliances that inspired this new season of resistance in a city with a rich history of political defiance. This feature documentary traces the trajectories of the larger arcs of its main characters as well as the movement as a whole, utilizing direct political actions as tent poles to guide the audience through the story. RADICALIZED is a very personal, untold story of the post Occupy millennial resistance.

These aren't radicals. They're privileged and over entitled punks. Most of them are middle class and live off the ngo-complex which coopts mass-based people-power bottom-up movements.

If the film maker wants radical, they should be checking out the black power groups which operate in south central los angeles.

I would suggest watching "Black Power Mixtape"

Just boring footage without a point
