Life In Belarus
Life In Belarus is a documentary film project, shot by Belarusian filmmakers, about the lives of ordinary Belarusians. From villagers living in an area considered to be Europe’s geographical heartland to lawyers and journalists contending with the Belarusian judicial system, the series shows how Belarusians respond to obstacles, fight for their freedom, and dream. These short, 24-minute films avoid stereotypes and propaganda about Belarus to help viewers come closer to the people who are defining the country’s future.
Life In Belarus is a continuation of Unknown Belarus, a project begun by the late Belarusian filmmaker Lyubov Zemtsova and her colleagues.
