Why We Fight? is a cinematographic film that attempts at understanding the many forms of violence that surround us. Based on their personal experiences, dancers Bérengère Bodin, Samir M'Kirech and TK Russell examine the violence around and within in themselves. How do you deal with fear, frustration and disappointment in today's world, where you feel unheard or misunderstood? Is it at all possible to act in a non-violent way? Or is that privilege reserved for those who create dance, music, art or words?

Why We Fight? is directed by choreographer Alain Platel and photographer Myriam Devriendt. With this film they want to pay tribute to the arts and to humanity. After the screening, UGent researcher Brigitte Herremans will discuss the flm with Alain Platel and Myriam Devriendt.
