Next Episode of Resilient Cities is
Resilient Cities is a five-part documentary series that uncovers thriving underground arts scenes in cities that have experienced major traumas: natural disasters, long-term war, political unrest or economic meltdown. Featuring five creatively unique cities -- Beirut, Lebanon; Kiev, Ukraine; Athens, Greece; Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Medellin, Columbia -- each episode features local artists who are determined to create art as a means of political protest, to create change or to display courage.Created from the perspective of filmmakers, writers, and musicians who live in these troubled and sometimes war-torn cities, art provides a glimpse into these less explored and embattled parts of the world. Resilient Cities shows that something beautiful and vibrant can continue to flourish against all odds.
In Athens; a photographer, an electronic pop band, a mural artist and a writer demonstrate how art is a means of survival in the midst of a city under economic crisis.
In Port-au-Prince; a radio host, a photographer, a Rabòday singer and a creole rapper showcase the emerging and subversive sounds and images of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.
In Columbia's city of Medellin, once considered the most dangerous place in the world; a rapper, a musician, a filmmaker and an urban planner take us on a tour of their city currently experiencing a cultural renaissance.
