Screening and discussion
Montrose / Museum District

Sit under the stars on the Rothko Chapel plaza and meet the most important man you never heard of thanks to Ruaridh Arrow’s award-winning documentary How to Start a Revolution. Arrow’s film explores the life and ideas of Gene Sharp, a leading thinker and writer on nonviolent conflict, techniques of resistance and strategizing change whose writings have played important roles in toppling dictatorships across the globe. Sharp’s seminal work From Dictatorship to Democracy has formed the blueprint for nonviolent revolutions in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Africa, and most recently the Middle East.

Q&A following the screening led by Jamila Raqib, Executive Director of the Albert Einstein Institution, which was founded by Sharp for promoting nonviolent change.
