CANCELLED Screening: Zero Silence

Screening March 29, 2012 7:00 PM

“Zero Silence is not a film about social media technology but about the revolt of a young generation for whom silence is no longer an option.”

Before any political revolution was in sight in the Middle East, filmmakers Javeria Rizvi Kabani, Jonny von Walstrom, and Alexandra Sandels visited Egypt, Tunisia, and Lebannon to witness the network revolutions already taking place.

By following young activists, journalists, and bloggers they show how silence is no longer an option for the youth who have access to the new digital tools and networks created in the last few years.

Shot between November 2009 and June 2011, the film explores the growing awarness that what was once an inconceivable dream of ending opression could materialise. We witness both their frustration and elation and the unbreakable network of support that made what seemed impossible, possible.
