VIVA BELARUS!

Film stills

Kaip žinome, didžiausia XX a. tragedija buvo Sovietų Sąjungos žlugimas. Laimei, mums ji tarsi neiširo... Nors mes ir turime tautinius simbolius, herbą, baltarusių kalbą, jie tarsi nereikalingi, laikini.

Belarus has been under dictatorship of Lukashenko for 15 years. Miron (23) is not interested in politics. However, the next concert of his ‘apolitical’ rock band triggers off an anti-regime manifestation. Miron is enlisted for the army for 15 months by way of punishment for ‘fomenting political unrest among young people’. And this is just a beginning... A film inspired by the story of Frank Viachorka, activist of the Belorussian opposition. Starring top Belorussian cinema and rock stars.
