How To Plan A Revolution follows two young political activists, Murad
and Emin, who are hoping to stage a peaceful revolution in Azerbaijan.
Authoritarian government reigns supreme in the Caucasus: the strip of
land with Russia to the north, Iran to the south, the Caspian Sea to
the east, and the Black Sea to the west. With recent events in Serbia,
the Ukraine, and Georgia, revolt creeps closer and closer to
Murad Gassinly and Emin Husseinov are two young Azeri political
activists wanting to make change with peace, not war. Armed with
orange spray paint and risking imprisonment for life, they graffiti
their revolutionary slogans all over Baku during the night, soon
realising that the key to success lies in foreign help. This
documentary follows Murad and Emin on their quest for support and
their campaign for a freer Azerbaijan with the upcoming elections.
They strive for a peaceful, non-violent rebellion, but are only met
with brutal authoritarian force. They are hoping George Bush's 2004
speech in Georgia rings true, that ‘across the Caucasus... they are
demanding their freedom and they will have it.'
