As a filmmaker my eye has always been drawn to the movements present in breakdancing; they are beautiful, fluid, and inspiring. This video released in March, “Spring Movements” by Justin Mashouf, combines this form of dance with footage that shows some of the millions who have fought for democracy in 2011 in the Arab world, and is an example of arts/media/culture as empowering forms of resistance. This week marks the first elections that are taking place amongst the Arab countries undergoing revolution, in Tunisia.
