Jared Katsiane – If There Is No Struggle

VIDEOKOPPI | 2.9.-19.9.2023

I shot If There Is No Struggle with a 1965 Canon Scoopic 16mm camera in the neighborhood where I grew up and still live. The film title comes from an 1857 Frederick Douglass speech: “if there is no struggle, there is no progress”.
