A story about the wealth of peaceful protests, represented on a daily basis by passionate people.
What do the Occupy Wall Street, the Spanish “Outraged” or the Arab Spring have in common? Is there any connection between the struggle for democracy of the Iranian movement and the riots in Syria? What is the link between the topless Femen Ukrainian activists and a Muslim culture like Egypt’s? And above all, what do Serbia and Turkey have to do with it?
Their reasons for protesting are all different, but the non-violent tactics used in their struggles are very connected. As are the activists that share strategies, new ideas and established methods.
Everyday Rebellion is a story about the wealth of peaceful protests, represented on a daily basis by passionate people in Spain, Iran, Syria, Ukraine, the USA, the UK and Serbia.
Everyday Rebellion offers mixed messages about the subtle nature of modern protest, but the characters trying to make the case are compelling enough to wish them well in their respective missions.— Adam A. Donaldson, Rotten Tomatones
A striking documentary that shows that non-violent forms of protest and civil disobedience can change the world.— Mark Adams, Chief Film Critic
This film is an authentic cinematic experience, but most importantly it is a tool for newer generations to access and understand activism and the power that comes with it.— The Arts Guild
