A Whisper to a Roar (USA, 95 min)

Directed by Ben Moses

Courageous democracy activists in five countries (Egypt, Malaysia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Zimbabwe) risk it all to bring freedom to their people. They come from a variety of cultures and live on different continents, yet they all take enormous risks to pursue political freedom for their people and aspire for accountable government. In each country, the regimes and rulers that oppress their people use remarkably similar techniques, and the activists’ most successful techniques are also remarkably alike, regardless of their circumstances. Shot over three years and finalized in July 2012 by award-winning filmmaker Ben Moses (Good Morning, Vietnam), the film was inspired by the work of Stanford University’s Larry Diamond, author of The Spirit of Democracy and Director of Stanford University’s Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. A Whisper to a Roar recently screened at the U.S. State Department. Writer-director-producer Ben Moses will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A
