"If you are someone who once imagined a better world or if you're someone who has checked out revolution and communism in the past, but have found yourself believing the mantra 'It looks great on paper, but it [is] horrible in practice. Communism just doesn't work,' you've got to see this film."

From a teacher in Atlanta:
If you’re anything like me, the idea of watching a six hour film seems nearly impossible. I rarely get six hours of sleep a night, six hours with a friend or family member, six hours to do whatever…pretty much the only thing that allows me to spend 6, 8, 12, 16 hours is my work…my job and I guess I’m lucky to have one.
If you’re anything like me, you probably ask yourself, “Is this really as good as it gets? Is this really the best of all possible worlds?” If you’re anything like me, you’ve caught yourself compromising your hopes and dreams of a better world and a different future. Maybe you’ve caught yourself compromising your imagination to conform to what we’re told is “possible” and if you’re anything like me…maybe you’ve even started to believe that nothing will ever change. This is the best we can do, so I should quit whining, get back to work and be thankful.
If you're anything like me, you MUST see this film; BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS!
BA Speaks: REVOLUTION—NOTHING LESS! is not just a film, it is an experience, a journey with a relentless revolutionary leader. If you're someone who once imagined a better world or if you're someone who has checked out revolution and communism in the past, but have found yourself believing the mantra “It looks great on paper, but it's horrible in practice. Communism just doesn't work,” you've got to see this film.
Bob Avakian is going to challenge some of your assumptions and he might even inspire you to think differently or rekindle that flame of hope and rebellion you once had. What is so powerful and potentially world changing about this film and Avakian's re-envisioning of communism and revolution is the science behind it. BA's words are going to tap into your emotions, your indignation and righteous anger at “the way things are.” All the while, he is going to guide you, scientifically, through how real revolutionary change is possible and how it could actually be made. That is powerful! There is NOTHING else out there like this. Truly, if you're anything like me, you will leave this film inspired, and yearning for NOTHING LESS than a WHOLE NEW WORLD.
