Everyday Rebellion is a tribute to the creativity of the nonviolent resistance. The film studies the consequences of a modern and rapidly changing society in which new forms of protest to challenge the power of dictatorships and sometimes also global corporations are invented on a daily basis. Everyday Rebellion wants to give voice to all those who try changing a violent system, choosing peaceful disobedience. As Ghandi said: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

Whilst editing the cinema documentary I also put together a teaser and a cinematic trailer for the film. Next to editing I designed two posters, graphics for promotional use on the project's cross-media platform and the documentary's own typeface »Everyday Rebellion«.
The Art Of Change
What does the Occupy movement in New York have in common with the Spanish Indignados protests or the Arab Spring? Is there a connection between the struggle of the Iranian democracy movement and the nonviolent uprising in Syria and what is the link between the Ukrainian topless activists of Femen and an Islamic culture like Egypt? And to top it off, what do Serbia and Turkey have to do with all this? The reasons for the various people’s uprisings in these countries may be diverse, but the creative nonviolent tactics they use in their struggles are strongly connected to each other. So are the activists who share these strategies, new ideas and established methods. Everyday Rebellion is a story about the richness of peaceful protest, acted out everyday by passionate people from Spain, Iran, Syria, Ukraine, USA, UK and Serbia. These methods are inventive, funny and sometimes even aggressive. And the activists who use them believe that creative nonviolent protest will win over violent protest – and they are right.
Join The Rebellion
Nonviolence has scientifically been proven to be more effective and successful than violent protest.
And the users of nonviolence are feared because they are rapidly changing the world and challenging dictatorships as well
as global corporations.
