Occupy Music is a documentary film about the independent music collectives in Brazil who, for the last ten years, have created their own social technologies, their own economy, their own university and even their own currency as a way of creating a sustainable living from music, reclaiming public space for public life and offering an alternative to corporate control of creative culture.

Dubber is the director of Music Tech Fest, and is Professor of Music Industry Innovation at the Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research.
