Cultures of Resistance

R-E-S-I-S-T. What does it mean to you? To millions of people all over the world, it defines the path towards obtaining global peace. CULTURES OF RESISTANCE is a massive documentary that covers a plethora of social movements across Asia, Africa, and South America. In this film, protest becomes the common bond all humans must share in order to fight back against decades of social injustice, war, and dictatorships. Travel the globe through this liberating documentary that will introduce you to political activists of all ages, colors, and cultures. Though the film covers an array of different methods used to get the people's messages across, the underlying theme is art as a weapon of peace. Through hip-hop, dance, photography, cartoons, and poetry, those who are oppressed communicate their injustices and strive to coexist in a world where freedom remains not something they are given, but rather something they must take. This film gives one the hope that through this united desire for peace, global public opinion will be heard and can overtake those who continue to destroy out of greed. CULTURES OF RESISTANCE proves to be an artistic message of peace itself that is determined to teach us the strength of humanity. (In multiple languages with subtitles) – M.M.
