From 2011–14, the world witnessed as millions of people self-organized and collectively began to imagine something different together. According to sociologist George Katsiaficas, “the basic assumptions of a society—patriotic nationalism and the authority of the government, hierarchy, the division of labor, and specialization vanish overnight. […] Popular movements not only imagine a new way of life and a different social reality but millions of people live according to transformed norms, values, and beliefs.” The intention of this two-night series is to take brief glimpses of these transformative moments through the lens of radical filmmakers Brandon Jourdan and Marianne Maeckelbergh (the team behind Global Uprisings) and Matt Peterson.

The series is sponsored by Students Against State Violence and the Institute for European Studies.
