This is a full and uncut interview with Vlad Teichberg, of Global Revolution TV, shot in December 2011 at the squat in Bushwick, Brooklyn where Global Revolution TV had set up studio space, just days before an NYPD raid would rout them from the space. Portions of this interview appear in the documentary American Autumn: an Occudoc (available on iTunes, or set your own price for the DVD). A New Yorker feature article described Vlad and Global Revolution TV in the following way:

"Global Revolution brands itself as non-hierarchical, but if anyone is in charge it is Vlad Teichberg, a thirty-nine-year-old former derivatives trader. (") Teichberg was born in Moscow, and moved with his parents to Queens when he was ten. He attended Princeton, where he wrote a thesis on number theory, then headed to Wall Street, where he worked for Deutsche Bank. "I thought globalization was going to create equality around the world," he said. After 9/11, his views changed. "The politicization of it--using it to start wars, and the Patriot Act and everything--it was obvious we were heading down the wrong path." He left finance, helped found a grassroots media collective, and poured his savings into the resistance."

American Autumn: an Occudoc, was the first feature length film to be released on the Occupy movement, receiving critical praise, including:

The New York Times: "(American Autumn) is calm and smart, offsetting its stridency with discussion, music, even humor, while issuing a call to arms."

MichaelMoore.com: "We now have a film of our own. This is not amateur hour. This is a movie as well made, in technical terms, as any Hollywood blockbuster with Pentagon funding."

Variety: "American Autumn" impresses most where many docs disappoint, expanding its scope without short-changing the wider subjects it covers."

Hollywood Reporter "an impassioned celebration of the Occupy Wall Street movement"

New York Daily News: "" this necessary and informative documentary looks at the faces behind the Occupy Wall Street movement" it is an effective, and heartfelt, clarion call."
