Taking Up Space
Meet the disrupters, the dreamers, the visionaries. From displaced Syrian refugees in Europe, to a Palestinian music collective using music to build bridges, to LGBT+ activists in Brazil, immerse yourself in real-life stories from across the globe of people who daringly and boldly claim and re-claim space, and fight to be seen and heard. These powerful, moving, and inspiring documentaries show both the strength of building communities and the power of resistance.
