Everyday Rebellion

Going around the world covering protests and demonstrations the Riahi Brothers shows us the interconnected world of nonviolent resistance, from Iran to Egypt, Spain to the United States. Propelled by their collective creativity, determination and the hope for a better future the protesters stand up to the pressure and repression that’s administered from the top. The Riahi Brothers celebrates the endurance of those who stand up to people in power, whether it’s out in the open or in the shadows, and showcases the strength and efficiency of nonviolence.

Shown wednesday-sunday 11 am to 9 pm at our transmedia lounge at Debaser Strand, and also as regular film screenings, see playing hours. 

Don’t miss the directors in seminar about film and activism on Friday 7 at Debaser Strand.
