Experiencing Interruptions?

I am Protest

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi

It's crucial to protest and to stand up for your beliefs. Everybody does it in their own way. For some people the protest is not a single act. It's a way of living. They are the Protest themselves.

"I am Protest" is a short documentary movie about the alternative forms of riot. For the characters in it it's not enough only to be on the streets. They change themselves every single day. Because they know that in this way they really change the world...
