Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus (2013) Directed by Madeleine Sackler 

Cinema at the Center: The Belarus Free Theater - Artivism vs. Activism

Co-presented by the Contemporary Arts Center in junction with This Time Tomorrow


Doors 6:15 PM / Start 6:45 PM @ CAC (44 E 6th St, Cincinnati, OH 45202)

The Belarus Free Theatre was established in a spirit of opposition to the country's president. When a number of democratic challengers arose in the presidential elections of 2010, the rigged vote returned President Lukashenko to his reign, and a younger generation of people in Belarus became angrily aware that they had known nothing other than a culture of censorship and fear. Opposition candidates were imprisoned, their families intimidated, demonstrations were crushed; this documentary shows how in the year that followed, a theatrical company orchestrated their response. (76 min)
