"A deep political analysis of one century of revolt and repression
in Iran, and the various roles of images in this collective history.
'The Silent Majority Speaks' is, for me, one of the works that legitimates
the existence of film, as for example 'The Hour of the Furnaces'."
- Nicole Brenez, French film curator and writer
"Mixing of-the-moment footage of the rise of Iran’s Green Movement
with glimpses of revolutions long since suppressed, Bani Khoshnoudi’s
"The Silent Majority Speaks" is an eloquent inquiry into the notion of
a collective memory, as well as a vivid and urgent corrective to political
amnesia. Attuned to the repetitive patterns of history and to the contradictory
power of images, the film is a feat both of courage and of lucidity, a rare
political document that is as clear-eyed about the past as it is the present."
- Dennis Lim, Director of Programming, Film Society of Lincoln Center
