The Arab Spring, Occupy, Femen, the pro-democracy movement in Iran or the Spanish indignados – however different their backgrounds may be, they all have something in common: peaceful but powerful demonstrations and creative and innovative activists who inspire each other across national borders. This documentary by the Iranian-born Riahi brothers reveals the many levels and at times humorous methods of civil disobedience in the face of the fatal complex of economics, politics, power and lack of restraint on a global scale. The fact that the filmmakers extol the virtues of peaceful protest and wish to inspire their audiences to similar acts of resistance should not be held against them.
