Forbidden Voices

Best Documentary Film 2013 - Nomination

Forbidden Voices

by Barbara Miller
Although their voices are oppressed, stifled and censored, Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi are not intimidated by the dictatorial regimes under which they live. These fearless women represent a new and networked generation of modern rebels. In Cuba, China and Iran, their blogs shake the foundations of the state information monopoly, putting their own lives at risk in the process.
