Synopsis

Landscapes of Resistance traces a journey through the memories of antifascist fighter Sonja (97), one of the first women Partisans in Yugoslavia, who was also among the leaders of the Resistance movement at Auschwitz. We make her story travel through time towards the bodies of a new generation of antifascists, suggesting that it is always possible to think and practice resistance.

Director Biography

Marta Popivoda is a filmmaker, artist and researcher living and working between Belgrade and Berlin. Popivoda has been specifically interested in the antifascist and feminist potentialities of the Yugoslav socialist project. In her recent work, she uses landscape dramaturgy, feminist storytelling and radical slowness principles to produce verbal-images or scenes of (antifascist) memory. Her first feature documentary, Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body, premiered at the 63rd Berlinale and was later screened at many international film festivals. The film is part of the collection of MoMA New York, and is featured in What Is Contemporary Art?, MoMA’s online course about contemporary art from 1980 to the present. Her latest feature documentary Landscapes of Resistance premiered at IFF Rotterdam in 2021 and by now won more than ten awards. Currently, her work is presented at the 12th Berlin Biennale and Manifesta 14 Biennal.
