WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Edited by Kerry Kennedy Adapted by Ariel Dorfman In searing and uplifting interviews, veteran human rights defender Kerry Kennedy examines the quality of courage within women and men who are dramatically changing the course of events in their communities and countries. Imprisoned, tortured and threatened with death, they speak with compelling eloquence on subjects to which they have devoted their lives and for which they have been willing to sacrifice. This unforgettable affirmation of the human spirit chronicles the struggles of fifty human rights activists, including Vaclav Havel, the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel and more than thirty individuals who have devoted themselves to human rights, including Kailash Satyarthi, who has freed tens of thousands of victims of child labor in his native India and Juliana Dogbadzi, who liberates African girls bound for sexual slavery. Permanent cast: Carolyn Baeumler, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Megan Byrne, Stephen Kunken, Aasif Mandvi, Lois Markle, Ellen McLaughlin, Charles Parnell, Keith Randolph Smith, and Danton Stone Special guests at select performances: Edie Falco, Brooke Shields, Gabriel Byrne, Rosario Dawson, Griffin Dunne, Kim Fields, Charles Grodin, Julianna Margulies, Lynn Redgrave, Isabella Rosellini, Fisher Stevens, and more Speak Truth to Power is being presented as part of the Impact Festival.
