October 23, 2012 – Film Journal International Review by Maitland McDonagh
“…the movie shines when it spotlights individuals who stepped up to the plate when common sense favored backing down…”
“…seeing this film made me realize: Yes, our system is flawed. No, I’m not always sure whom to believe. But I still want to be part of this. I want to be part of this messy, frustrating system and be active in my community.”
“The story “A Whisper To A Roar” tells is far from easy. The material is complex and timely, and the uncertainty, violence and constantly shifting political situations make the filmmaker’s task a daunting one. Moses handles the difficult material adroitly and though parts of the film are difficult to watch due to violence, what shines through is a core belief that people will go to great lengths to make their voices heard.”
October 22, 2012 – Shockya Review by Brent Simon
“…“A Whisper to a Roar” is a powerful documentary that ties together the heroic and ongoing efforts of democracy activists in five countries, and reaffirms the human spirit’s innate desire for freedom.”
“Emotionally engaging and impactful, “A Whisper to a Roar” is a well put together look at the yearning and universal nature of values we too frequently ascribe as uniquely American.”
October 22, 2012 – University of Southern California’s The Daily Trojan write-up on “A Whisper to a Roar” by Jordyn Holman
“Though the filmmakers did not purposefully schedule the release of the film to coincide with the [first Presidential] debate, the close proximity of the two events added a fresh perspective to “A Whisper to a Roar.” Before viewing the film, the audience watched the debate, then witnessed seeing the other side of democracy in Moses’ documentary. This contrast emphasized the recurring message of a democracy being only as strong as the people willing to fight for its vitality.”

October 18, 2012 – Los Angeles Times Review by Gary Goldstein
“The provocative documentary tells the stories of activists who risked almost everything to bring democracy to their countries.”
“An impressive array of archival news footage, enlightening interviews with activists, politicos, academics and journalists…”
“What’s most interesting about this film is that it does not view these uprisings with rose-colored glasses.”
“The film illustrates this elegantly with an animated interlude…”
“A Whisper to a Roar” is a vivid documentary with unusual access to the key players in the geopolitical dramas it recounts.
“…trenchant, polished interviews lend a firsthand immediacy to a whirlwind tour of supposed democracies and bold resistance.”
“This deft digest from the director Ben Moses is by turns shocking and inspiring as we witness both the brutal abuse of power and life-endangering dissent.”
“The footage plucked from archives — crowds, interview face-offs, heads of states grandstanding — can be electric.”
“”A Whisper to a Roar” documents recent grassroots efforts for change – genuine democracy confronting its puppet-show guise…”
“An expertly drawn primer on the soft dictatorships that constrained five different countries and the peaceful revolutions that sought to expunge them…”
Director, Ben Moses “ambitiously interweaves stories of oppression and uprising out of the Ukraine, Venezuela, Egypt, Malaysia, and Zimbabwe.”
Deborah Stambler writes about “A Whisper to a Roar” in her blog, betweenpages.org.
“I’m coming to a place where reading, thinking, writing about the struggle and the process of struggle are fascinating. I know that I’m doing all of this from my cozy American home, not on the front lines, not in harm’s way or trying to protect my children, find food, etc. But this is the first step. I am paying attention. This is exactly the kind of introspection that the film “A Whisper To A Roar” encourages.”
