Meet the Filmmakers Gala

This film showcases how Protest Movements are a fundamental part of the United States, from the Civil Rights Movement through Black lives Matter protests.

Artist courage can been seen in the naked Trump sculptures seen across the country, painted bill boards at the entrance of the Holland Tunnel, children playing with life like heads of dictatorial world leader soccer balls, and a Trump Hotel suite turned into a jail cell for 45 minutes.

'The Art of Protest' gives an inspirational and challenging message how anyone, not just artists can get a few cans of spray paint , tall ladder and protest what is wrong with our society, world leaders, politicians, racial discrimination, economic exclusions, legal injustice, animal cruelty, environmental waste and anything else that needs to be changed in our world.
