Disruptive Film: Everyday Resistance to Power, Vol. 1
DVD, curated by Ernest Larsen and Sherry Millner, Studio FACETS, 2016
 
 
With this collection, curators Ernest Larsen and Sherry Millner have successfully established a new history of film as political resistance. Vol. 1 is made up of four distinct programs with 26 short-form experimental non-fiction films. These radical global narratives span from 1914 up to the early 21st century and truly represent the diversity in approaches to documentary filmmaking. The collection has been put together for both political and educational purposes, to offer film and media makers and scholars a chance to review unaccountably under-appreciated works of film, video, animation – from France to Chiapas, from Serbia to China, to Nigeria – works that propose various strategies of resistance to power.
 
 
This collection includes the film Expulsion from Paradise by Andrey Ustinov & Natalya Nikolaeva (Russia, 2002, 2 min.)
