This video, by creative activist and journalist Eleanor Goldfield, is about art - as both fight and salve; the soul and pulse of our movements. It’s how we describe what it is to be human, and how we move to change that human experience. Ultimately, art won’t topple empires. But it’ll inspire those who do.
