Cultures Of Resistance
Documentary 2003 (reposted)
Filmmaker: IARA LEE
Producer: GEORGE Gund
This is a republishing of an old post of mine. It is dedicated to the budding popular revolution against the corrupt and blood-thirsty Islamic dictatorship in Sudan (and everywhere else).
It is to commemorate those young people who went out and said they wanted freedom and democracy but never made it back to their homes!
It is also to remind you to say it loud: Set the Captives Free!
Cultures of Resistance does not focus on one place in the world where a military unit or private corporation is violating a group of people’s human rights. Instead, the film looks at conflicts all over the world and seeks out artists who devote their work to fighting injustice and violence.
