Bringing Down a Dictator
2001, Directed by Steve York, Narrated by Martin Sheen
56 minutes

Bringing Down a Dictator is a short documentary that has a lot to say. It follows the Serbian resistance group Otpor! as they try to overthrow their dictator and instill democracy through peaceful practices, beyond just protests. Their tactics involved humor, massive propaganda, and detailed plans, which shocked the world considering many of the “leaders” of the movement were just students. They reached and inspired almost the entire nation and succeeded in overthrowing their dictator. This is a great film for anyone looking to incite change especially if it ever seemed impossible. This Serbian revolution truly makes it seem that positive change can come from common people and can be attained through nonviolent means.
