Forbidden Voices

The film tells the story of three female bloggers from Cuba, Iran and China who risk their lives every day. Yoani Sánchez, Farnaz Seifi and Zeng Jinyan do not get intimidated by their countries‘ dictatorial regimes. These young women represent a cross-linked generation of modern resistance fighters who threaten the federal information monopoles of their countries through their blogs, with facebook, youtube and twitter. The Swiss filmmaker Barbara Miller accompanies these modern rebels and shows how they denounce the falsities in their homelands, build political pressure and cause worldwide response by doing so.
