The Art of Fallism

74 mins | Norway, South Africa | 2019

Directors: Aslaug Aarsæther, Gunnbjørg Gunnarsdottir
Producers: Ingvild Aagedal Skage, Wisaal Abrahams
Genres: Arts & Culture, Experimental, Gender & Sexuality, Politics, Social & Human Interest, Youth & Children
 Revisit South Africa’s #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall protest movements through the eyes of central activists who shed light on what reporters missed—the crucial work shouldered by women and trans people to ensure the movement championed all.

The Fallists want to end repression for everybody in society. With township boys, feminists and the trans community all joined, they want to revolutionize a racist and systematically unequal South Africa. What happens when they struggle to even tolerate one another? This is a story about big dreams, chaos, belonging and rejection. Meet the activists and artists that have inspired youth across the world.

Remarkable , daring and highly original film about Children Power in bringing happiness and changes into the life After the War .
Logline : Childhood and happiness are great and sacred concepts. Even war,  cannot destroy these profound and holy words.

To scrape money together for the concert, Malook and some friends pull the copper lines out of the walls of empty buildings that are riddled with bullets and rockets. In one of the most moving scenes, the children write apologies for their theft on the walls, should the people who have fled ever return. A spark of hope remains for the children and for us, too, as long as such acts and art – songs and wall paintings – survive.

Nasreen in Tehran : When she was thirteen, she was married in spite of her reluctance to a twenty years older man whom she did not want. She tells her resistance to this marriage, her wedding night, the birth of her two children and how she never stopped thinking leaving her husband until the day she succeeded. In 1972, the year Nasreen was born, Caroline was six years old.
Caroline in Paris.In the midst of a happy childhood, if one can say childhood is a happy moment in life, when she was eight, Caroline was raped by a great uncle. She tells about her childhood, her rape and how she knew right away that she would not keep the secret as her great uncle asked her to, and about the visons and nightmares that ensued.
This documentary summons the memories and the ghosts of a common suffering, intertwining the two stories each one in an urban scenery where the representations of sexuality are totally opposed, with filmed sequences, photos and paintings made by Caroline and inspired by what she saw in Iran, and by her nightmares and her memories.
In spite of these tragedies, life goes on for Nasreen and Caroline, who cling to life’s little moments of happiness. With this film, they break the silence and hope to get other girls to do the same.
