Iara Lee
Iara Lee, a Brazilian of Korean descent, is an activist, filmmaker, and founder/director of the Cultures of Resistance Network, an organization that promotes global solidarity and connects and supports agitators, educators, farmers, and artists to build a more just and peaceful world through creative resistance and nonviolent action!

As a filmmaker, Iara has directed/produced several full-length documentaries and dozens of short films over the past decade.

Her latest documentaries were shot in West Africa: Burkinabč Rising (2018), about the intersection of art and politics in Burkina Faso, and BURKINABČ BOUNTY (2018), on agroecology in Burkina Faso.

She currently has three projects in post-production: STALKING CHERNOBYL, a film examining the underground culture of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone three decades after the world's most infamous nuclear disaster; FROM TRASH TO TREASURE, a short documentary on turning negatives into positives in Lesotho; and WANTOKS: DANCE OF RESILIENCE IN MELANESIA, a short film highlighting the performers who are using their talents to celebrate local culture and draw international attention to their islands’ fight against climate change.

CAMERA UNOBSCURED, a film profiling photographers-for-change from the global South, and THE SAMI'S SONG OF SURVIVAL, a short documentary about indigenous resistance on the arctic frontier, are in pre-production.
