Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a good short primer...as the narrator, Martin Sheen, says in a compelling concluding segment, Otpor's success suggests that oppressive leaders can best be toppled not by outside military force, but by grassroots movements from within." --Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

"A priceless history lesson...Dictator succeeds most intriguingly as a how-to manual for revolution via civil disobedience. Grade A." --Entertainment Weekly

"...remarkable and inspiring....a fascinating window on a revolution that was given limited coverage by America's 24-hour news services." --Kevin McDonough, United Feature

About the Director

Steve York is a veteran documentary filmmaker who has worked in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America on subjects ranging from religious fundamentalism to American history to nonviolent conflict. Bringing Down a Dictator is York's second documentary about successful nonviolent movements. His first, A Force More Powerful, an in-depth examination of the history of nonviolent conflict, played in film festivals in 1999 and then was broadcast on national public television and nominated for an Emmy. Bringing Down a Dictator won the coveted George Foster Peabody award in 2003. Like A Force More Powerful, Dictator has been translated into some ten languages and distributed around the world. York's third film, Orange Revolution, chronicles 17 days in the Ukraine when a group of ordinary citizens engaged in extraordinary acts of political protest. Capturing the songs and spirit of this moment in history, Orange Revolution tells the story of a people united, not by one leader or one party, but by one idea: to defend their vote.
