Plot & Details

Learn how the wisdom of one man has inspired peaceful revolution across the globe as filmmaker Ruaridh Arrow profiles From Dictatorship to Democracy author Gene Sharp, whose non-violent tactics for toppling dictators have been employed not only in Egypt, but also by protestors throughout Eastern Europe. Additional interviews with Retired U.S. Army Colonel Robert Helvey - a staunch supporter of Sharp - highlight the effectiveness of techniques detailed in From Dictatorship to Democracy as additional conversations with Serbian and Iranian revolutionaries reveal precisely how those methods are put into action.
