Wednesday Night Movie: A Whisper to a Roar, July 26, 7:00 PM

A Whisper to a Roar, Ben Moses (2012, 96 minutes), Wednesday, July 26, 7:00 PM, Church of the Messiah (614 N. Bush Street, Santa Ana, CA 92701), Upper Room.

Inspired by the research of Stanford scholar Larry Diamond, Ben Moses's film examines the modern democracy movements in Egypt, Malaysia, the Ukraine, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. It includes extensive interviews with heads of state as well as activist leaders.

"This deft digest from the director Ben Moses is by turns shocking and inspiring as we witness both the brutal abuse of power and life-endangering dissent. [...] The footage plucked from archives--crowds, interview face-offs, heads of states grandstanding--can be electric" (Nicolas Rapold, New York Times).
