Preoccupied, which is presently appearing at the Brooklyn Film Festival, is a film around two youthful, brash venture brokers who through a mix of hubris and guilelessness end up driving the charge of an against Occupy development. Flawlessly consolidating the genuine footage of Selvig and Steifler at the challenges, Gibbons weaves an anecdotal story of two exceptionally narcissistic, misanthropic, cash hungry fellows simply attempting to get by in life . . . my profiting as could be allowed. For the primary portion of the film John and Robert are two of the most contemptible characters you can envision, especially the rude and philandering John. In any case, as Gibbon’s story plays out, the consequences of their hostile to Occupy tricks start to uncover the foundations of their inspiration.
Gibbons, who likewise acts as a business executive with Station Film (the organization additionally created this film), says the purpose of the film was to utilize comic drama as an approach to investigate “one of the characterizing issues of our times.”
