The Singing Revolution: A Single Nation, A Million Voices, The Fall of an Empire
Annenberg Auditorium, Cummings Art Building (map)
The Singing Revolution tells the story of how hundreds of thousands of Estonians gathered publicly between 1987 and 1991 to sing forbidden patriotic songs and share protest speeches, risking their lives to proclaim their desire for independence. While violence and bloodshed were the unfortunate end result in other occupied nations of the USSR, the revolutionary songs of the Estonians anchored their struggle for freedom, which was ultimately accomplished without the loss of a single life.
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers James and Maureen Tusty. For more information on the film, please visit singingrevolution.com.
