Reel Connections Film Festival – Everyday Rebellion

Reel Connections Film Festival – Everyday Rebellion

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.

Film Synopsis:

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.
