The Singing RevolutionRating-TBC

Directed by James Tusty | USA | 2006 | 1h 35m

Between 1987 and 1991, hundreds of thousands of Estonians gathered publicly to sing forbidden patriotic songs and share protest speeches, risking their lives to proclaim their desire for independence. This documentary is an inspiring account of one nation’s dramatic rebirth and of humankind’s irrepressible drive for freedom and self-determination.

Reviews

‘Can singing change history? The Singing Revolution…shows that it already has.’
★★★★
Matt Zoller Seitz The New York Times

‘Singing Revolution eloquently illustrates that, once granted, even a smidgen of freedom can transform into an unstoppable weapon against oppression.’
Nick Schager, Slant Magazine

This screening is part of the Oxford Festival of the Arts.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
