Reel Connections Film Festival – Everyday Rebellion
05 Nov 2014 | Wednesday 7:00pm to 8:55pm
Presented by BEMAC, Reel Connections Film Festival showcases a collection of topical films from selected participating G20 nations with nine evenings of world cinema in the three weeks leading up to the Leader’s Summit.
What does the Occupy movement have in common with the Spanish Indignados or the Arab Spring? Is there a connection between the Iranian democracy movement and the Syrian struggle? And what is the link between the Ukrainian topless activists of Femen and the anti-government protests in Egypt? The reasons for the various uprisings in these countries may be diverse, but the creative nonviolent tactics they use are strongly connected. EVERYDAY REBELLION is a documentary and a cross-media project celebrating the power and the richness of creative nonviolent protest and civil disobedience worldwide.
