Storyville: Resistance: The Battle of Philadelphia (2018, 34 mins) directed by M. Asli Dukan

Resistance: the battle of philadelphia is a six-part, short-form, speculative fiction web series about a clandestine collective of residents who mobilize to resist the pervasive surveillance and the repressive state violence of a powerful corporate government in a near-future Philadelphia.

Inspired by films like Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames (1983), Ivan Dixon/Sam Greenlee’s The Spook Who Sat By The Door (1973) and Gillo Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers (1967), the series also subverts the dystopian genre to form a complex and historically rich narrative about the struggle for justice and liberation.
