Join us for a 2013 Tallgrass Film Festival encore screening: "Forbidden Voices: How to Start a Revolution with a Computer."

Their voices are suppressed, prohibited and censored. But fearless, and now world-famous, female bloggers in Cuba, China and Iran shake the foundations of the state information monopoly, putting them at great risk. Tracing each woman's use of social media to denounce and combat violations of human rights and free speech in her home country, the documentary attests to the Internet's potential for building international awareness and political pressure.

Directed by Barbara Miller, Switzerland, 2012, 96 minutes.
