Rouge Parole

A documentary of the period during the departure of the dictator ben Ali and the fall of the corrupt Tunisian government. The beginning of the Arab Spring. Lots of footage of street protests, of both the conventional big city protest and also of the scary and violent kind. Also a lot of guys on street corners and in cafes talking very loudly about the revolution. It is from the point of view of a guy in the middle of it all, and there is little context or explanation. I think the Arab Spring is the most significant world event since the end of the cold war, except maybe Brad and Jen splitting up, so this is must see stuff for me.
