Premiere this friday, may 24, bratislava! Gestures of Resistance connects the personal testimonies of some of the last survivors of the Holocaust from Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia through their… More presentations of antifascist resistance - chapter 1: Armed Resistance, chapter 2: Civic/Political Resistance, chapter 3: Resistance through Art, chapter 4: Resistance through Solidarity. We use these personal stories to inquire further into their relevance in today´s society, what our protagonists feel about the right-wing political movements gaining power, and how they think we can use their stories to resist current tendencies. Gestures of Resistance weaves filmed footage from protest movements and individual acts of solidarity today, with filmed testimonies of our protagonists, archival material, and artworks depicting antifascist resistance, to plead for a path that reshapes our present and future into one governed by equality and justice for all, and asks us to resist the closure of our societies now before it´s too late.
Finally Belarusian premiere of a documentary My granny from Mars supported by B2B DCO took place in Minsk at Northern Lights Nordic-Baltic Film Festival in Belarus We were happy to have a full house and a… More lot of good questions. It was extremely important for us to screen the film in our homeland.
