Cultures of resistance
Documentary ‘Cultures of resistance’ features different communities promoting and encouraging change across the globe. As a community peacefully resisting invasion and international oblivion, the Sharawis and their culture also play a role in this inspiring and emotive film by Iara Lee.
‘Does each gesture really make a difference? Can music and dance be weapons of peace? In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict and, as she saw it, heading for self-destruction. After several years, travelling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change. This is their story.’
