Human stories of social relevance designed to spark conversation, tolerance and understanding.
Civil Disobedience is an anthology streaming series with topics centered around a variety of social issues which have been plaguing the world for decades, and with seemingly no end in sight.
Having been born and raised under Apartheid in South Africa, my entire existence and self worth was codified and evaluated by a group of people based purely on physical appearance. People, mind you, who had no inkling of me as an individual, let alone a human being.
Since becoming an adult, not much has changed other than becoming aware of a myriad of additional groups that have been unfairly singled out for derision.
The Civil Disobedience Series was borne out of a desire to highlight this irrational fear of others. We will endeavor to portray those being marginalized as three dimensional human beings; to give people pause so as not to jump to a learned reaction.
Our ultimate goal is to generate a discussion to enlighten, educate, and hopefully help contribute to a state of acceptance, rather than one of perpetual confrontation.
