Forbidden Voices

Barbara Miller | 97' | 2012 | Suisse

Four courageous young women use their personal blogs and everyday actions to fight political oppression and violation of human rights in their countries. Their Internet diaries are an outcry for human rights, freedom of expression and fundamental democratic rights. Their governments, in turn, respond with threats and acts of repression in order to intimidate and silence these brave bloggers. GLOBAL VOICES follows its protagonists on their risky, conflict-ridden journeys and documents their personal commitment as they try to bring about lasting political and social change.
