share your experiences with Gael
Mexican film star Gael Garcia Bernal has invited i-genius members to join the Resist network. Resist has launched a global search for people who are resisting injustices and exclusion in their everyday lives. The aim is to record their stories online and to use some of them to help shape his new film due for release in 2009.
The project was initiated by film director Marc Silver. Marc believes that in today’s globalised world we are all interconnected. All of our futures depend on the successes or failures of resistance movements. He says we “want to make a film that expresses that people can’t exist in a constant state of resistance but need to simultaneously create alternatives to what they are resisting…When I began thinking about this film, I was really setting out to solve something that was a bit of a mystery to me.”
Marc feels that the economic system we live in today is far from healthy and that “political power has really been relegated to the choices we make as consumers”.
