Megaphone is an astute case study of a young democracy struggling internally and facing the uncertain future of Europe. It is a portrait of the people set on putting into practice and upholding what the fall of communism was supposed to provide: the right to have one’s voice heard. The documentary explores how with the growth of an alternative cultural scene came the revival of Romanian political awareness. Although there are different attitudes and opinions within the community itself, the reawakening of a culture of protest in brewing for the past decade becomes obvious.
