SYNOPSIS:


Does a gesture really make a difference? Can music and dance be weapons of peace? In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey in a world increasingly embroiled in conflict; Iara encountered many people struggling to promote change. From Burma, where non-violent monks take on a dictatorship, to Brazil, where musicians turn guns into guitars, and ending in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, where photography, music and film have given a voice to the speechless, the movie celebrates people standing up to violence with art and creative activism.

BIOGRAPHY:

Iara Lee, a Brazilian of Korean descent, is an activist, filmmaker, and founder of the Caipirinha Foundation, an organization that promotes global solidarity and peace with justice projects. Iara is currently working on a variety of initiatives, grouped under the umbrella of Cultures of Resistance, an activist network that brings together artists and change-makers from around the world. At the center of these initiatives is a feature-length documentary film entitled Cultures of Resistance, which explores how creative action contributes to conflict prevention and resolution.
