A documentary on the use of comics to combat racial stereotyping. Screening will also feature two animated shorts.
The beautiful power of our imagination: Could it be possible that we can change the world? Three Comic Artists address in their work the sexist and racist stereotyping in their field of work in the film 'Drawn Together'. Accompanied by two wonderfully creative animated shorts, this programme of the festival showcases art as a vehicle for UNDEPENDENCE: it starts in your mind and is an attitude of peaceful resistance towards the status quo.
