Landscapes of Resistance

Pejzaži Otpora

23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

A journey through the memories of antifascist fighter Sonja (97), one of the first female partisans in Yugoslavia, who was also one of the leaders of the Resistance movement at Auschwitz. Time-traveling towards the bodies of the new generation of antifascists and suggesting that it is always possible to think and practice against the grain, this film discovers new aesthetic and existential tropes to understand resistance as a state of being.
