Voice

Sometimes we don’t choose whether we become party to historical events. The life of an 18-year-old, whose identity remains concealed from the public, is turned upside down after she joins anti-government protests in her native Belarus.

The personal testimony of a young woman who has undergone interrogations, detention and ultimately the initially inconceivable departure from the country, presents the historical events in Lukashenko’s Belarus in an intimate light. The threatened regime is fighting tooth and nail to remain in power, not hesitating to use violent repression against unarmed demonstrators and deeply marking the lives of all who oppose it. It is uncertain how long the regime’s critics will remain free. Nonetheless, the battle for democracy and rule of law continues.

Impact

Belarus is considered the last surviving dictatorship in Europe. The protagonists of the film Voice, who took part in the protests after the presidential election know this first-hand. The easiest way to show empathy and solidarity with the Belarusian people is to sign a petition for a free Belarus. Add your own to more than 90,000 signatures!
