Resistance is necessary! - Poverty, displacement, violence and corruption are the sad and often life-threatening reality of countless people in all parts of the world. Sometimes we hear about it in the media, issues are briefly touched upon and then forgotten. But resistance and resilience manifest themselves in many places, whether small or large. The six documentaries selected for the series tell of this. Often it is women who have to defend themselves against violence and who go their way despite threats and persecution. People defend themselves against poverty and injustice - sometimes gallows humour helps. In Chile, mass protests lead to a new, progressive constitution - that is encouraging!
