Shorts - Shapes of Activism



Kino Reitschule

Three short films will take us on a journey into intersectional activism such as performative actions by queer people defending the earth (Flores del Otro Patio); engagement with trash and trash pickers in Rwanda calling out against neo-colonialism and hyperglobalization and for equality and freedom (Terra Mater); and along with a group of practitioners of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé, which is one of the few to welcome the vulnerable “travesti” and LGBTQI+ community in a country with deep structural racism, where more trans people are murdered than anywhere else in the world.
