THE DICTATOR'S PLAYBOOK

THE DICTATOR'S PLAYBOOK

Delving into the lives and minds of six tyrants—Kim Il Sung, Saddam Hussein, Benito Mussolini, Manuel Noriega, Francisco Franco, and Idi Amin—this insightful documentary examines how, despite their differences from one another, they each followed a similar, well-worn path-a "dictator's playbook" that continues to have global significance today. Examining the tactics they used to suppress dissent, demand absolute loyalty, and rule by force of personality, the program also reveals what drove their thirst for domination and control—and how, despite their power, they were plagued by secret fears and private demons. For each man, viewers learn how he managed to seize and wield power, what resistance he met, and how his regimes finally ended. Grades 10 and up. English SDH subtitles. Black-and-white and color. Total time: 340 minutes. Dictator Productions. ©2018.
