For the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, performing comes with risks beyond those usually associated with theater: censorship, imprisonment, and worse. Director Madeleine Sackler goes behind the scenes with this acclaimed troupe of imaginative and subversive performers who, in a desolate country choked by censorship and repression, defy Europe’s last remaining dictatorship. Comprised of smuggled footage and uncensored interviews, this documentary gives audiences a front row seat to a resistance movement as it unfolds both on the stage and in the streets—, re-confirming that the power of art and hope can indeed change the world.
