TVF Release the making of How to Start a Revolution documentary 'Road to Revolution'
Road to Revolution is the crucial accompanying back-story to one of the most current and important films of our time. The film follows filmmaker Ruaridh Arrow on his dramatic journey, from funding difficulties to facing death threats in Tahrir Square to produce his documentary, How To Start A Revolution. Winner of Raindance Best Documentary award, Arrow's film gives an exclusive insight into the man, Gene Sharp, who has aided dozens of revolutions with his handbook on over-throwing dictatorships. Featuring Arrow’s own footage from Cairo during the Arab Spring, this behind the scenes programme allows Arrow to explain why he felt it was so important to make this incredible film and how he had the persistence to develop it through a variety of means including crowd-funding, twitter and a network of international revolutionaries.
The companion documentary will premiere on Current TV immediately after How to Start a Revolution on January 1st 2012.
