Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and
speeches of everyday Americans, the documentary feature film THE

throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with
their insistence on equality and justice.

Narrated by acclaimed historian Howard Zinn and based on his
best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and, with
Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History, THE PEOPLE SPEAK
illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to
our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted.

Anthony Arnove, and Howard Zinn, co-directed by Moore, Arnove and
Zinn, and features and dramatic and musical performances by Brolin,
