This Love Letter to Resistance Will Light a Fire in Your Belly and Warm Your Heart

3.8 ·

The short film invites us on an intimate journey through the liberated territory of the Zad of Notre-dames-des-landes, a community in France who resisted an airport, and in doing so created a beautiful way of living with hope in these tempestuous times. 

"I had never come to the zad before" is collaboration between occupants of the zad, film director Leo Leibovici, The laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination and star of "American Horror Story" and "Falling Water", Lizzie Brochéré.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
