SUMMERpropaganda from PinchukArtCentre and Docudays UA: screening of documentary «Everyday Rebellion»

On Thursday, 7 August, at 19:30 the PinchukArtCentre and Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival invite to screening of the documentary «Everyday Rebellion» (director Arash Т. Riahi, Arman Т. Riahi, Austria, Switzerland, 2013, 115 min) in the framework of SUMMERpropaganda project. After the documentaries the audience will have a chance to join discussion featuring journalist Natalia Gumenuk.

"Everyday Rebellion" tells the general movement of "Occupy" and protests in Spain and the Arab spring, and also answers the question of whether there is a connection between the Iranian democratic movement and the Syrian uprising, Ukrainian topless FEMEN activists and protests in Egypt.

Causes of riots in these countries may be different, but their creative nonviolent tactics of struggle are closely linked. "Everyday Rebellion" is a documentary cross-media project which explores wealth and power of creative peaceful protest and civil disobedience around the world.

SUMMERpropaganda is a series of the public film screenings and discussions held in the context of “Fear and Hope” show - a group exhibition of three Ukrainian artists Nikita Kadan, Zhanna Kadyrova and Artem Volokitin. “Fear and Hope” is an urgent artistic response to the new sociopolitical context of Ukraine formed by recent events in the country and ongoing crisis. Art works presented within the exhibition cover topics of memory, nostalgia and history, heritage and the role of media in the modern world, thus creating a platform for discussions that go beyond visual arts.

Public film screenings will help reveal the theme of the exhibition in a broader historical context, referring the viewer to the recent past Ukraine and going beyond a purely domestic background. Screenings will be followed by discussions featuring artists, critics, historians, theorists, political scientists, composers and etc.

Documentaries screening and discussions are held by the PinchukArtCentre and Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival, supported by the National Oleksandr Dovzhenko Centre. All events will be taking place at the PinchukArtCentre until end of August. Participation is free.
