Film Orange Revolution
Texas Premiere of Award-Winning Documentary Orange RevolutionWith Producer/Director Steve York
Thu, April 3, 2008 | ACES Avaya Auditorium
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
The Robert S. Strauss Center's International Security Film Series invites you to the Texas state premiere of the award-winning documentary film Orange Revolution, on Thursday, April 3, 2008 at 7:00 pm in the ACES Avaya Auditorium (corner of 24th and Speedway). Parking is available at the San Jacinto Garage and the Speedway Garage.
The film depicts the startling events of 2004 in Ukraine, where a stolen election and the attempted poisoning of a presidential candidate triggered a popular uprising that restored democracy and achieved a political revolution without a single bullet fired. Its honors include the President's Award at the 2007 Chicago International Documentary Festival.
The film's producer/director, Steve York, will attend and lead a post-film discussion on Ukraine and the broader potential of non-violent protest movements. Also participating will be Jack DuVall, president and founding director of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, and Professor Lester Kurtz of UT-Austin's Department of Sociology. The discussion will be moderated by Strauss Fellow and LBJ School Professor Alan J. Kuperman, who coordinates the film series.
Admission is free but on a first-come, first-served basis.
The screening is part of the Strauss Center's International Security Film Series that screens new and forthcoming documentaries and feature films on topics of global concern, including ethnic conflict and humanitarian intervention.
