In September 2009 American filmmakers Ernest Larsen and Sherry Millner took part in a demonstration in the Greek city of Thessaloniki. The material they shot during this protest would later provide the core to a video essay setting out to ‘grasp what has been happening in Greece, which, as we see it, amounts to a kind of laboratory or test-case for what global capital is attempting to force upon the world’. (From an interview to Lia Yoka, Kaput 12, 2012). An emotionally engaging and reflective document on the continuity of anarchism and its aspirations, Rock the Cradle offers hope of universal solidarity and a vision of how art can both be in, and about, history.
