Everyday Rebellion

Opening Screening and UK Premiere + Filmmaker Q&A

19 September 2014, 8:30 pm - 10:45 pm
Filmhouse, 88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh, EH3 9BZ
Region/Country Focus


From London, Ukraine and Syria, to the US, Iran and Spain, hailing the revolutionary spirit of clowns, music, ping pong and the human body, Everyday Rebellion is a moving and playful celebration of the triumph of creativity over repression, and a vibrant reminder that power must always give way to humanity.

Guided by evidence that non-violence is twice as effective as violence in creating change, millions of people are dropping their fists and adopting peaceful tactics to resist blind power – from boardrooms to market squares. Everyday Rebellion vividly demonstrates that the future of civil disobedience has never looked brighter.

Plus Filmmaker Q&A

We hope to be joined by director Arash Riahi for a Q&A following this screening.

"One of the most powerful and engaging documentaries to come out of the industry in the last decade, Everyday Rebellion is powerful not only due to its heavy political theme, but in the way it commands the documentary medium"
