GESTURES OF RESISTANCE 2019, Documentary Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, 1h02min, language: ro/en/cz subtitles: english Film by Olga Ștefan Sunday, November 1, 2020, 4pm Screening followed by a discussion about the film and its implications in the current political context, including the US elections on November 3. Clubraum, Rote Fabrik, Seestrasse 395 Donation-based entrance Social distancing will be maintained Gestures of Resistance connects the personal testimonies of some of the last survivors of the Holocaust from Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia through their presentations of antifascist resistance - chapter 1: Armed Resistance, chapter 2: Civil/Political Resistance, chapter 3: Resistance through Art, chapter 4: Resistance through Solidarity. We use these personal stories to inquire further into their relevance in today´s society, our protagonists´ feelings about the rise of the right, and how they think we can use their stories to resist current tendencies. Gestures of Resistance weaves filmed footage from protest movements and individual acts of solidarity today, with filmed testimonies of our protagonists, archival material, and artworks depicting antifascist resistance, to plead for a path that reshapes our present and future into one governed by equality and justice for all, and asks us to resist the closure of our societies now before it´s too late. One of the protagonists of the film is Theodora Iancu, the daughter of Marcel Iancu, the co-founder of the Cabaret Voltaire and DADA. Theodora passed away in January 2020. This is the first and last recording of her speaking about her father and his experiences during the Holocaust in Romania. From a review of the film by Dan Romascanu: "‘Gestures of Resistance’ proves an excellent mastery of the tools of documentary cinema. It is well structured, excellently documented, filmed and edited impeccably, and accompanied by a musical score adapted to each episode and to the personalities of those who testify in front of the camera. I hope that the film will be broadcast and seen by as many people as possible and not only on commemorative occasions." Gestures of Resistance is made as part of The Future of Memory, transnational platform for Holocaust remembrance through art and media in Romania and Moldova. Our exhibitions, other film projects, and archive of original documents can be found at www.thefutureofmemory.ro RSVP on FB too: https://www.facebook.com/events/633273767552644/ View Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooVvVyt7Jqc
