RE VERZIO: Everyday Rebellion
Wednesday, 11 March, 6 pm
Riahi Brothers | 2013 | Austria, Switzerland | 110’
What does the Occupy movement in New York have in common with the Spanish Indignados protests or the Arab Spring? Is there a connection between the struggle of the Iranian democracy movement and the nonviolent uprising in Syria? The reasons for revolts in these countries may be diverse, but the creative nonviolent tactics they use in their struggles are strongly connected to each other. So are the activists who share these strategies. This documentary follows pioneers of these new forms of protest as they prepare and implement acts of resistance. “Everyday Rebellion” is a story about the richness of peaceful protest, acted out every day by passionate people from all over the world who believe that nonviolent resistance against regimes is more effective than the violent variety.
