Argentina's troubled history, culminating in the major crisis of 2001, has seen the rise of a wave of original artistic and cultural expression. The documentary The Art of Resistance introduces us to several creators and artist collectives who use artistic expression as a means to deliver powerful social statements, explore unbridled creativity and participate actively in constructing a new reality.

Commentary by Claire Valade, Film critic from Quebec

Best seen with Luttopie, rêver d'un monde avec tout le monde dedans by Jean-Pierre Boyer and Mosaïque Amériques by Alexandrine Bourdouxhe. With their anti-globalization themes, discourse that denounces injustice and social inequality, the air of hope and positive energy they exude, and the innovative, inspiring solutions they offer for the major problems facing the world today, these three films have an affinity, speak to each other, and complete each other in spite of their very different subject matter. Essential viewing for everyone who wants to change the world, starting in their own backyard, and proof that political struggles can follow surprising paths, fuelled by the education of the masses.
