Directed by Iara Lee, produced by George Gund
CULTURES OF RESISTANCE is a film journey into the causes of contemporary war and conflict around the world, and an impassioned meditation on the apocalyptic problems facing humanity at this critical juncture in the history of the species.
The film captures the stories of creative changemakers and international peace activists striving to turn our upside down world right side up- be it through work on disarmament/ nuclear nonproliferation, universal jurisdiction, top down/ground up diplomacy, or arts & culture to romote peace with justice. The voices of socially engaged artists provide the narrative thread to this rich mosaic film. Their personal stories, told in many tongues, broaden our understanding of the geopolitical fault-lines that lie behind most modern day conflicts. By showcasing a variety of different and effective strategies for achieving positive and lasting change, we hope to inspire our audiences to further action and engagement.
