Weeks after picking up the prize for Best Short Documentary at the first Indy Film Awards, the Cultures of Resistance network behind WANTOKS: Dance of Resilience in Melanesia has announced a number of its films will now be free to view online.
A statement from the group read:
“As coronavirus continues to spread across the globe and whole countries go into lockdown, we need solidarity and creative resistance now more than ever. At Cultures of Resistance Films, we’re joining an effort started by film festivals to make art free and accessible during these difficult times…
As a way of extending solidarity to all who are suffering or living under quarantine, we are making all our films available for free online. Below you can find a list of our films and links for viewing them on our Cultures Of Resistance YouTube or Vimeo.”
If you would like to see WANTOKS, which received a 4-star review from Indy Film Library back in January, the documentary can be found in full here:
Other documentaries from the group’s extensive archive include Berkinabe Rising: The Art of Resistance in Burkina Faso, LIFE IS WAITING: Referendum and Resistance in Western Sahara and Modulations: Cinema for the Ear, all of which can be found in full on the Cultures of Resistance YouTube channel.
