Belarus. Zyvie Belarus!!!

20 Jul

Although my friend says this film is a bit out of date, I still recommend to anyone who would like to see what happens (OK, she says that what we can see in the film happened in Belarus 5-10 years ago) just behind the Eastern border of the EU. ‘Zyvie Belarus’ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2723138/) is the the fi

lm I’m talking about. Based on real story, the film shows the fight for freedom of expression and for the use of the Belarussian language and is one of the ways to show that people still are ready to fight for what they believe in. The other way to show that they’re not idifferent to what happens around is the festival that has been organised continuously since 1990 in Grodek, Podlaskie Voivodeship, Poland. It’s Basowiszcza! (http://www.basowiszcza.org/https://www.facebook.com/Basowiszcza).There are both Polish and Belarussian bands playing there and I can already recommend a couple of them:
