Lovejoy / 100

Over the past two and a half years, streets and squares across the world have become the site of massive demonstrations, strikes, occupations, riots, rebellions and revolutions. From the Arab Spring to the movement of the squares in Southern Europe, and from there to the global Occupy movement and the current uprisings in Turkey and Brazil, people everywhere have been rising up against the power of governments, corporations and repressive regimes, representing a global legitimation crisis that affects authoritarian regimes and liberal democracies alike. Filmmaker Brandon Jourdan and anthropologist Marianne Maeckelbergh (Leiden University) will be present to screen some of their documentary shorts, reporting from the front lines of Cairo, Athens, Oakland, Madrid, Lisbon and most recently Istanbul, as well as to answer questions.
