Event Description

Half a world away from Tahrir Square, an octogenarian from Boston tends to his orchids and struggles to make sense of the “interwebs”. His name is Gene Sharp and he hardly seems like a dangerous man. But for the world’s dictators, his ideas about nonviolent revolution make him just that. In 1993, Sharp self-published his manifesto From Dictatorship to Democracy, a 198-step guide to toppling dictators. Sharp and his eclectic group of disciples chronicle how his methods of direct action and civil disobedience have shaped democratic struggles throughout Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Ukraine, Indonesia, Burma, Iran and Syria. Supported by archival footage from four decades of popular uprisings, How to Start a Revolution shows how one man’s thinking has undermined tyrannical regimes and contributed to the liberation of millions of people.
