- Democratic revolutionary handbook
- The recent democratic revolutions in Serbia in 2000, Georgia in 2003, and the Ukraine in 2004 all seemed to follow a quick and easy pattern: the exposure of rigged elections, followed by massive street protests, and a regime that collapsed without a fight. But the film reveals the lengthy and meticulous preparations behind these seemingly spontaneous demonstrations, showing how modern marketing techniques have combined with revolutionary politics to transform the region's governments. Features interviews with founding members of the opposition political parties - OTPOR in Serbia, KMARA in Georgia and PORA in the Ukraine. The democratic revolutionary game plan doesn't always succeed as in the case of the failed 2005 attempt in Azerbaijan.
