Dangerous Acts starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus

Dir: Madeleine Sackler
United States / 2013 / 76mins

As mass protests and violent clashes shake Belarus for a fifth week, join our free online screening of this searing documentary on Europe's last dictatorship, and follow the artist-activists risking their lives to challenge President Lukashenko.

There has never been a more urgent time to revisit Madeleine Sackler's behind-the-scenes look at a dramatic year in the life of the Belarus Free Theatre: an acclaimed troupe of imaginative and subversive performers, defying the regime by staging powerful, taboo-breaking, underground shows. 

Comprised of smuggled footage and uncensored interviews, Dangerous Acts is an astonishing piece of political cinema, giving audiences a front row seat to a resistance movement as it unfolds both on the stage and in the streets.
