Rating & Content Info
Why is The Singing Revolution rated Not Rated? The Singing Revolution is rated Not Rated by the MPAA
This excellent documentary demonstrates how a nation of people challenged the occupation of their country with very little violence. Opening scenes of the film feature historical footage and stories about the many people who were displaced from their homes. The most explicit footage is in the first chapter of the DVD, which includes a scene of a soldier shooting a man in the head and pictures of bodies lying on the ground. Later in the production, scenes of demonstrations show thousands of people coming into conflict, however there is no overt violence shown.
