Opening of WATCH DOCS Belarus festival

Mir Cinema (Kazlova, 4a)

Come to the opening of WATCH DOCS Belarus festival!

We could not have left this event without any surprises. The opener of the 5th anniversary WATCH DOCS Belarus festival will be a live art performance of one of the most unpredictable, interactive and craziest, in a good way, theatres – mini theatrical production “The Opening” of the “InZhest” physical theatre. But be careful! You may get a chance to become part of real mystification and check your own limits to freedom right in the hall of the “Mir” cinema.

The first film of the festival, “The Trial”, is directed by Askold Kurov, 2017, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, 70 min. 18+. This is a timeline of the politically motivated trial of Oleg Sentsov taken place in Rostov-on-Don.

And, of course, guests and organisers will make presentations, and the whole team behind the festival will be introduced. 

We invite friends of the festival and founders of the Award to Belarusian documentary filmmakers to the afterparty with a special guest – “Razbitoe serdtse patsana” band. You may enter this party by an invitation card or by becoming a founder of the Award on
