“…an inspiring documentary film.”
“…especially liked the interviews with female Egyptian activist Esraa Abdel Fattah and the Venezuelan student campaigner Roberto Patiño — both remarkable people who clearly have an interesting future ahead. It’s the self-sacrifice and idealism of figures such as these that give the story its lift.”

Director Ben Moses visited Facebook headquarters in Melo Park, Calif. today to screen the film for several Facebook employees.
Although Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had to miss the October 3 premiere, that didn’t stop him from making an appearance. He was called away at the last minute to attend the first presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Romney, but filmed this video in advance to introduce “A Whisper to a Roar” at the Director’s Guild Theatre in Los Angeles.
“A Whisper to a Roar” opened the Amnesty International Reel Awareness Film Festival on November 15, 2012. The screening was followed up by a lively Q&A with writer/producer/director Ben Moses via Skype. Thanks to all who participated and best to all for the rest of the festival!
