"Imagine the scene in “Casablanca” in which the French patrons sing “La Marseillaise” in defiance of the Germans, then multiply its power by a factor of thousands, and you’ve only begun to imagine the force of "The Singing Revolution".”
Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
"...I'd pronounce this unity of the Estonian people as nothing short of extraordinary."
Harvey Karten, CompuServe
"INSPIRING!... GRIPPING!... A STORY OF HOW FEELINGS BECAME SONGS, SONGS BECAME A NATIONAL VOICE AND VOICE BECAME ACTION!"
Robert Abele, LA Times
"...the story of "The Singing Revolution" is a thought-provoking reminder that culture and citizenship are closer bedfellows than we might realize, and that having a song in one's heart is more than just a romantic notion."
Bruce Bennett, The New York Sun
"Tears seem to flow wherever the film is screened - the emotion of the music and the story spark a reaction amongst Estonians and foreigners alike."
Joel Alas, Baltic Times
“Directors James and Maureen Tusty acknowledge that few outsiders care much about this tiny Baltic nation. And then, through a mix of moving interviews and affecting footage, they show us why we should.”
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
After enduring WWII-era brutalization by Hitler's Nazi Party and decades of repressive Soviet dictatorship, the tiny Eastern European nation of Estonia began to declare its independence from Communist rule in the late 1980s. Over a five year period, beginning in 1986, hundreds of thousands of Estonians began to systematically and repeatedly gather in public venues to collectively sing illegal patriotic songs, declaring their desire for national independence but never resorting to violence amid their protests.
Not coincidentally, Estonia was indeed one of the first nations to break away from the Soviet Union in the events leading up to the fall of the Iron Curtain. The documentary The Singing Revolution chronicles this extraordinary yet seldom told chain of events.
