A Force More Powerful explores how popular movements have battled regimes and military forces with nonviolent actions. Among other historic examples, Gandhi employs civil disobedience to loosen Britain’s hold on India; Danish citizens use “resistance disguised as collaboration” to rescue Jews in Denmark during Nazi occupation; and Chilean workers use nonviolence to protest Augusto Pinochet. (2000, dir. Steve York, 168 min.)
