“Can singing change history? The Singing Revolution, a documentary by James Tusty and Maureen Castle Tusty about Estonia’s struggle to end Soviet occupation, shows that it already has.” New York Times

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 and a striking example of humankind’s irrepressible drive for freedom and self-determination.

It was the “Most Inspirational Film” at the Boulder International Film Festival in Colorado.
