The most dangerous threat to the world’s dictators is a soft-spoken, 83-year-old man named Gene Sharp. This revelatory documentary details strategies and tactics outlined in Sharp’s 1973 book From Dictatorship to Democracy: A Conceptual Framework for Liberation. The book has served as a “toolbox for the agitator” (Sunday Times) among anti-authoritarian revolts from Eastern Europe to the Arab Spring, and offers proof that nonviolent direct action is the most effective weapon against totalitarian regimes. (2011, dir. Ruaridh Arrow, 85 min.)
