Why: When filmmakers E. Raymond Brown and Williams Arntz (“What the BLEEP”) first released the independent movie “Ghetto Physics” in late 2010, they knew the film was an early battle cry, a wakeup call to America and beyond. The cutting edge hybrid documentary explored the dynamics of the ‘powers that be’ in laymen terms that the ‘man on the street’ could easily relate to. Inflation, foreclosure, unemployment, healthcare issues, pollution, crime, recession and depression: one percent was benefiting – pimping; and somebody, the other 99 percent, were being played !
Cut chase to the present, and the DVD release of “Ghetto Physics,” from Intention Media, accompanied by the manual, “GhettoPhysics: Redefining the Game,” finds itself smack dab in the middle of an OCCUPY movement which could have easily been a scene in the original film!
Explosive, controversial, insightful and comedic, “Ghetto Physics” is the Movie of the Movement and filmmaker E. Raymond Brown is emerging as one the OCCUPY movement’s more coherent and eloquent voices.
