It is quite symbolic that this program will be shown in the capital of the country which is stuck between the Orange Revolution and the so-called ‘improvement’ of the Viktor Yanukovych regime. Watch and think, together with the Belarusian filmmakers Andrey Kutsila and Viachaslau Rakitski and their film Enough! To Freedom…; a researcher of revolutions in Egypt, Venezuela, Malaysia, Zimbabwe and Ukraine, the director of the film A Whisper to a Roar, the American, Ben Moses; and the authors of the online project The Term: Selected Episodes, the Russian filmmakers Pavel Kostomarov, Aleksandr Rastorguev and Aleksey Pivovarov.
The moderator of the program - Iegor Soboliev, activist and director of Svidomo, the Bureau of Journalistic Investigations
