Movie Info

How To Start a Revolution reveals the remarkable story of modern activism, and the power of people to change their world, through the legacy of this unassuming, soft-spoken man. Professor Sharp has written the blueprint for revolutionary leaders around the globe, "From Dictatorship to Democracy," a handbook of 198 strategic 'weapons' to topple dictators. The film explores how organizers of an uprising in one country train and inspire participants in the next, and how social media now threatens tyrants in ways that were unimaginable a decade ago. We also meet progressive trailblazers from Serbia, Ukraine, Egypt and Syria, who discuss how they struggled to seize democratic power. -- (C) 7th Art

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

There is much more to be explored than this noble documentary, made on a tiny budget, has the resources to examine.

Top Critic

The problem is, as doc-ready as Sharp's ideas might be, How to Start a Revolution isn't much of a movie.

Top Critic

Plays more like a trailer to the insurrection coming soon to our respective neighborhoods than a primer on Gene Sharp's work or its influence.
