Nikol’s solitary act of peaceful protest would mark the start of a 25-day revolution that inspired thousands of protesters across the country to peacefully join together with one clear demand: Serzh Sargsyan must go.

With remarkable access to key players reaching the highest levels of government and with footage recorded by phone wielding protesters, I Am Not Alone captures the energy and hopefulness of grassroots protest and direct action. This emboldening “velvet revolution” started with one man who, standing firm in his belief that he was not alone, convinced a nation that it deserved more.

We welcome director Garin Hovannisian, producer Alec Mouhibian and Associate Professor in Social Policy, Dr Armine Ishkanian, for a ScreenTalk hosted by Giorgi Gogia (Associate Director of Europe and Central Asia Division, Human Rights Watch).
