FORBIDDEN VOICES is a documentary about three world-famous female bloggers who are risking their lives to expose violations of human rights and freedoms in Cuba, China and Iran. Governments have tried to silence the voices of online activists Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi, but these brave women continue to challenge their censors. They use social media and online tools to raise international awareness about abuses and help build political pressure against repressive regimes. Their stories reveal the resilience of the human spirit and the power of speaking out against injustice.
This year marks the Festival's 25th anniversary. Your participation at this and other events throughout the year will greatly help to sustain one of Ottawa's longest running film festivals.
