»Gestures of Resistance« connects the personal testimonies of some of the last survivors of the Holocaust from Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia through their presentations of antifascist resistance – chapter 1: Armed Resistance, chapter 2: Civil/Political Resistance, chapter 3: Resistance through Art, chapter 4: Resistance through Solidarity.
The filmmakers use these personal stories to inquire further into their relevance in today’s society, what the protagonists feel about the right-wing political movements gaining power, and how they think we can use their stories to resist current tendencies.
»Gestures of Resistance« weaves filmed footage from protest movements and individual acts of solidarity today with filmed testimonies of the protagonists, archival material, and artworks depicting antifascist resistance.
