In this paper I explore film as a socio-political and artistic - transformative cultural practice, through which acts and activism are performed. I am interested in how film embeds the acts of peacebuilding, and how this scene of image(ina)ry is transformed by those acts, and the auteurs into activist citizens, whose activism question ideologies that surrounds them. I argue that acts of citizenship and activism as a creative practice does not solely involve the analysis of how activism has been represented in films, but also the understanding of what is beyond these representations and narratives. I look at a) how film auteurs emerge as activists through the narratives and the created scenes in film; b) how these acts consequently represent the “answerability to Others” and c) the link between (cinematic) performativity and activism.
