Bringing Down a Dictator (Burmese)
Written, Produced & Directed by Steve York
Bringing Down A Dictator documents the spectacular defeat of Slobodan Milosevic in October, 2000, not by force of arms, as many had predicted, but by an ingenious nonviolent strategy of honest elections and massive civil disobedience.
REVIEWS AND AWARDS:
"...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, The New York Times
"A priceless history lesson...Dictator succeeds most intriguingly as a how-to manual for revolution via civil disobedience. Grade A."
"...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
"...an inspiring story on courage in the face of unspeakable cruelty."
--The Christian Science Monitor
