ON PRESSURE – Belief in progress and resistance

The focus programme On pressure is dedicated to those people whose livelihoods are at risk through neo-liberal belief in progress - repressed, exploited and overrun by the supposed triumph of capitalism. Four selected films present true heroes who, in the fight against the eternal winners, will not give up no matter how seemingly hopeless their situation might be. These are stories of people who remind us that there are indeed alternatives to unconditional growth, its associated progress and a supposed ‘happy ending’ for a lucky few.
