The Singing Revolution

The Singing Revolution is a refreshing movie. When the oppressor believes his own lies and doesn't dare to kill anymore to preserve his power, it is only a matter of time until said power is overcome by... songs. The interpretation is mine, since the documentary only provides historical testimony, as reviewed by the many parties involved. The movie making technique is nothing fancy, and the archive footage is of varying quality, but the storytelling is relentless, and the subject has a power of its own. Thumb up! Note: 7.

Showing this week only at the Kendall Square Theater. Hurry to watch it! See the schedule for your city.
