THE SINGING REVOLUTION
A single nation. A million voices. The fall of an empire.
Most people don’t think about singing when they think about revolution. But song was the weapon of choice when Estonians sought to free themselves from decades of Soviet occupation. The Singing Revolution is an inspiring account of one nation’s dramatic rebirth. It is the story of humankind’s irrepressible drive for freedom and self-determination.
“Imagine the scene in ‘Casablanca’ in which the French patrons sing ‘La Marseillaise’ in defiance of the Germans, then multiply its power by a factor of thousands, and you’ve only begun to imagine the force of ‘The Singing Revolution’.

“Inspiring!… Gripping!… A story of how feelings became songs, songs became a national voice, and voice became action!”
“It’s one of the most inspirational and powerful documentaries I’ve ever seen.”
