THE PROJECT (für den DEUTSCHEN Text runter scrollen)

Help us change the world through spreading creative non-violent protest methods on our cross-media platform everydayrebellion.net!

Over the course of the last 5 years we were working on EVERYDAY REBELLION – The Art of Change - a documentary and cross-media project celebrating the power of creative, nonviolent protest and civil disobedience from Syria to New York City, from Teheran to Kiew, from Istanbul to Madrid.

Our goal was to give a voice to the people who try to change violent and repressive systems with non-violent protest methods and tactics. We followed inspiring non-violent activists and movements like Occupy Wallstreet, the Spanish Moviemiento 15M or Ukraine's topless feminist movement Femen. We also met and gainded the support of lesser known Syrian and Iranian activists as well as some of the legends of the non-violent movement like The Yes  MenReverend BillyInna Shevchenko or Srdja Popovic from the former Serbian movement OTPOR that managed to overthrow Serbian dictator Slobodan Milosevic.

The first part of the cross-media project, the cinema documentary, has been finished and had it's world premiere at the renowned CPH:DOX film festival in November 2013 where the film won the audience award with the highest rating in the history of the festival. More than 50 festival invitations followed as well as eight other awards like the Cinema for Peace Award for the Most Valuable Documentary 2014.

THE EVERYDAY REBELLION WEB-PLATFORM

We decided to build the web-platform everydayrebellion.net in order to create a creative hub for activists worldwide to be inspired and to spread the creative non-violet tactics. On the platform activists can upload their own material but also watch and download a growing number of video-tips, checklists, tutorials and books in different languages for their daily rebellion.

This is a unifying project between different cultures and countries, that is for us more than a commitment. It is a life project and homage to all the anonymous activists that are changing our world and are never being rewarded for that. 

WE NEED YOU AND WE COUNT ON YOU

Our project is a non-commercial one so we don't have any banners or sell space for commercials on the platform. We want the project to remain financially independent and that's why we count on your support because we ran out of funds for the maintenance of the Everyday Rebellion platform and the outreach campaign to spread the film and improve the new mobile app.

The more money we can raise the longer we can do the following things:

  • Editing of more video protest tips out of our 1500 hours of shooting material.
  • Improvement and updates of the new Everyday Rebellion mobile app
  • Supporting new upcoming movements by visiting them and documenting their tactics
  • Translation of the content of the platform into more languages
  • Outreach to spread the project
  • Employ two halftime freelancers who will create and curate new content on the topic of non-violent protest forms and civil disobedience for the platform

AWARDS FOR THE PLATFORM

The cross-media platform has also been several times awarded so far: European Civis Media Award and the Erasmus Media award as well as the Ben Award at the Biennale in Frankfurt and the ARTE Pixel Prize Award at Power to the Pixel.

Hopefully we can spread the film and the seed of nonviolent protest as much as possible through this campaign with your help. 

We thank all of you rebels in advance and send a big hug!

EVERYDAY REBELLION 

Während der letzten 5 Jahre haben wir an EVERYDAY REBELLION – The Art of Change – gearbeitet, einem Dokumentarfilm und Cross-Media-Projekt über die Macht des kreativen gewaltlosen Protestes und zivilen Ungehorsams von Damaskus bis New York, von Teheran bis Kiew, von Istanbul bis Madrid. Unser Ziel war es, den Menschen eine Stimme zu geben, die versuchen, brutale und unterdrückerische Systeme mit gewaltlosen, friedlichen Protestmethoden und Taktiken zu ändern. Wir sind inspirierenden gewaltlosen Aktivisten und Bewegungen wie Occupy Wall Street, den spanischen Moviemiento 15M oder der feministischen Oben-Ohne-Bewegung Femen aus der Ukraine gefolgt. Wir trafen aber auch weniger bekannte Aktivisten aus Syrien und dem Iran, sowie manch legendäre Aktivisten des gewaltlosen Widerstandes wie die Yes Men, Reverend Billy, Inna Shevchenko oder Srdja Popovic von der OTPOR! Bewegung, die mitverantwortlich für den Sturz Milosevics war. 

Der erste Teil dieses Cross-Media-Projektes, der Kinodokumentarfilm, ist bereits abgeschlossen und hatte seine Premiere beim renommierten CPH:DOX Kopenhagen Dokumentarfilm Festival im November 2013, wo er den Publikumspreis gewann – mit der höchsten Bewertung in der Geschichte des Festivals. Es folgten bisher über 50 weitere Festivaleinladungen weltweit sowie 9 Preise, u.a. der Cinema for Peace Award für die Most Valuable Documentary 2014. 

DIE EVERYDAY REBELLION WEB-PLATTFORM 

Wir haben uns dazu entschlossen, die Webplattform everydayrebellion.net zu entwickeln, um einen kreativen Hub für Aktivisten weltweit bereitzustellen, damit man sich inspirieren lassen und die gewaltlosen Protestmethoden weiter verbreiten kann. Auf der Plattform können Aktivisten ihr eigenes Material raufladen, aber auch auf eine ständig wachsende Zahl von Video-Tipps, Checklisten, Tutorials und Bücher in unterschiedlichen Sprachen für ihren täglichen Widerstand zugreifen. Everyday Rebellion ist ein vereinigendes Projekt unterschiedlicher Kulturen und Länder, ein Projekt, das uns mehr bedeutet als einfach nur eine Verpflichtung. Es ist ein Lebensprojekt und eine Hommage an alle anonymen und unbekannten Aktivisten, die unsere Welt verändern und dafür niemals prämiert werden. 

WIR BRAUCHEN EUCH UND ZÄHLEN AUF EUCH

Unser Projekt ist nicht-kommerziell, also haben wir auch keine Banner oder Werbeflächen auf der Website. Wir wollen, dass das Projekt finanziell unabhängig bleibt und deswegen zählen wir auf eure Unterstützung – denn nun sind uns sind die finanziellen Mittel ausgegangen, um die Plattform weiter Instand zuhalten, neue Inhalte zu generieren oder das Projekt und die eben erschienene Smartphone App zu updaten. 

Je mehr Geld wir aufstellen können, umso länger können wir folgende Dinge damit machen: 

  • Schnitt neuer Protest-Tipps aus unseren über 1.500 Stunden Drehmaterial
  • Verbesserungen und Updates der neuen Everyday Rebellion Smartphone App
  • Unterstützung neuer Protestbewegungen durch die Dokumentierung ihrer Taktiken und Methoden 
  • Übersetzungen neuer Inhalte auf der Plattform in weitere Sprachen 
  • Outreach-Kampagne um das Projekt weiterzuverbreiten 
  • Anstellung zweier Teilzeit-Freelancer die neue Inhalte zum Thema gewaltloser Protestmethoden und zivilem Ungehorsam für die Plattform erstellen und posten werden 

PREISE FÜR DIE PLATTFORM

Die Cross-Media Plattform wurde ebenfalls bereits einige Male preisgekrönt: Mit dem European Civis Media Award, dem Ben Award der Biennale in Frankfurt und dem ARTE Pixel Prize Award beim Power to the Pixel in London. Wir hoffen, die Saat des gewaltlosen Widerstandes durch unser Projekt mit dieser Kickstarter-Kampagne verbreiten zu könne und zählen dafür auf eure Hilfe! 

Wir danken euch Rebellen im Voraus und senden euch eine große Umarmung!

Risks and challenges

No risk, no change, rebels!

Taking a stance as filmmakers, and generally, as human beings, was a necessity for us. Of course we are vulnerable too but we felt our risk is not comparable to the risk of all the activists out there who are fighting for a more human world are experiencing.

We left our comfort zone as documentary filmmakers and took a stance also because we wanted to stop feeling helpless. We believe that it is not enough to just hope that others will do the job.

We have a solid plan with this campaign and don't see anything that is representing a risk that can stop us from any of our promises that we make to you.

Let's take care of each other so that we can be dangerous together!
