Top 6: November 25th 2020
The HEROES OF TODAY platform once again shows its commitment to tackling intolerance and discrimination with its new film ‘Intolerance is still there’. The short film premieres on 16 November to celebrate International Tolerance Day, shows the riots that happened in New York’s Stonewall Inn in June 1969. This uprising consisted of a series of spontaneous demonstrations and riots in protest of a police raid. These events are remembered as the first time ever that the LGBTI+ community rose up against a system that persecuted people because of their sexual orientation with the consent of the government. That night is widely recognised as the catalyst of the LGBTI+ rights movement in the USA and the rest of the world. With impeccable cinematography and creativity, this film also tells the story of Julio Zuniga, a Mexican gay rights activist and footballer in the LGBTI+ league. Zuniga was never in the Stonewall riots or even present in the filming of ‘Intolerance is still there’, he was murdered in Mexico in 2017, the victim of a hate crime because of his sexuality. But thanks to the innovative technology of face replacement and 3D in this film ‘he returns to life’ to remind us all that, unfortunately, 50 years later, intolerance still exists. Joining the past and the present, the content of ‘Intolerance is still there’ becomes a powerful message against the inherent discrimination in society today and gets viewers to reflect about the need to change the future thanks to fundamental values such as tolerance and equality.
