Marwa Arsanios – Who is Afraid of Ideology? Part 3: Micro Resistencias (2020)

Marwa Arsanios’ Who is Afraid of Ideology? series (2017 – 2020) weaves together ecological activism, the struggles of women, and Indigenous land rights, from Northern Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan to the so-called ‘coffee belt’ of Colombia. Self-defence, autonomy, collectivity, eco-feminism, Indigenous struggle, and seed-protection define the common ground for these women in their resistance to the capitalist logic of extraction and exploitation of the land. The last film in this trilogy, Part III – Micro Resistances, takes place in Tolima, Colombia, and focuses on the ongoing systemic war waged by transnational corporations against one of the smallest and most essential elements of life: the seed. Against forced displacements, violence and murder, Indigenous women are preserving their native seeds, and an ancestral knowledge of cultivation and care.

  1. I tend to notice a lot of documentaries and doc shorts on the premium cable channels, but there are a great many more that never turn up there, and this is probably a good example. Truly important ones that we might never hear of, but for all your great work. Will now have to check whether parts I & II are here as well.
