Cultures of Resistance
Documentaries

December 11 - 12, 2015

Cultures of Resistance as a project is to create and distribute films that advance public awareness about issues of social and economic justice, and that showcase creative efforts to promote peace and protect human rights. Pera Film is showcasing two documentaries directed by Iara Lee: K2 and the Invisible Footmen and Life is Waiting: Referendum and Resistance in Western Sahara. Iara Lee, a Brazilian of Korean descent is an activist, filmmaker, and director of the Cultures of Resistance Network. In 2010, she released a feature-length documentary entitled Cultures of Resistance, which explores how creative action contributes to conflict prevention and resolution. As an extension of her commitment to the issues explored in the film, she also founded the Cultures of Resistance Network, an organization that promotes global solidarity, supports efforts to secure peace and social justice, and brings together artists and change-makers from around the world.
