When director iara lee created Cultures of Resistance (2010), she did not want to confine herself to the traditional boundaries of a feature documentary. Instead, she envisioned Cultures of Resistance as an ongoing initiative that would go beyond the 90-minute feature documentary format. One part of this project was a series of short films that complement and expand the initial film. 

Cultures of Resistance Snapshots (2011) is a DVD collection of some of the most popular and acclaimed short films in this series. As a thematically and geographically diverse selection of thirteen shorts, Snapshots takes viewers from Asia to South America to Africa to meet cartoonists, musicians, and antiwar activists who are using art as a nonviolent weapon for resistance. The short films featured in Snapshots can be accessed online via the links below. If you are an educator or would like to arrange a community viewing of the films and you need a DVD copy, please contact us at info [at] with your inquiry.
