Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""A Whisper to a Roar" is a vivid documentary with unusual access to the key players in the geopolitical dramas it recounts."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"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."
