Moments of Resistance

  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

In this film, Austrian film artist and activist Jo Schmeiser presents various portraits of women that aim to explore how resisting — in exceptional situations as well as in everyday life – becomes a political way of life. Based on interviews with politically engaged women of today and historical sound documents, biographical accounts of antifascist resistance during the 1940s and of forced labor, the film creates an encouraging panorama of voices, experiences and strategies – lived possibilities of collective and self-determined action for a society based on solidarity without discrimination or exclusion.
