A Whisper to a Roar - Palms for Life Fund
French philosopher Voltaire once cautioned, "It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." As the powerful new documentary A Whisper to a Roar demonstrates, Voltaire's warning has never been truer than it is today. Directed by Ben Moses (Taking the Hill: The Warrior's Journey Home) and inspired by the work of renowned democracy scholar and author Larry Diamond (The Spirit of Democracy), the film spotlights the perilous plight of pro-democracy activists in five countries as they mobilize against authoritarian governments that have been very wrong, in some cases for a very long time.
