Red Revolution

Red Revolution is an on-the-ground journey into the so-called “red-shirt” protest movement that has been locked in an increasingly violent political struggle against Thailand’s government. This 22-minute documentary joins the protesters as they march into Bangkok to demand democracy and equality from the country’s traditional ruling elites whom the protesters claim are holding back their democratic rights and have created gross economic and judicial inequalities.

Told through the first-person narrative of a photographer who has been documenting their struggle, the documentary witnesses their protest as it evolves from a non-violent movement into a series of bloody street battles leaving hundreds injured and 25 dead. Ultimately, the story reveals how the protesters have begun a dangerous struggle for Thailand's democratic future and are bringing the country to the brink of revolution.
