Based on testimony and song from ‘Protest in Harmony’, a radical choir in Edinburgh, Our Voices Resound tells an ongoing story of activism and struggle through singing. It offers fresh insight into the long relationship between music and politics and intersperses personal and intimate stories to the broader context and collective experience of singing and activism. This film reflects on the significance of singing radical songs, the community aspects of belonging to an inclusive group, the politics of enabling people’s voices, and the intervention of public spaces to perform and create awareness about current issues. Like constant dripping wears away stone, persistent collective singing can be a powerful, peaceful and positive force for change in the world.
A sensual and cinematic exploration of the relationship between amputees and their limbs, through interwoven dance and dialogue.
