Larry Diamond, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, has produced a documentary, A Whisper to a Roar, on democracy activists in five countries (Egypt, Malaysia, Ukraine, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe).

The film has received rave reviews, including one from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who commented that “the film is not only a riveting documentary, but also offers inspiration to people everywhere who seek to make governments accountable to the citizens they serve.”

The film was screened at various locations around the Washington, DC, area in January, including the Harvard Kennedy School and the State Department. A panel discussion followed the State Department screening with executive producer Larry Diamond, two of the film’s activists, Esraa Abdel Fattah and Roberto Patiño, and filmmaker Ben Moses.
