“This film is not fiction. This is what’s happening right now in Belarus – the country where law and justice haven’t been working for 26 years. My country.”
Pavel Supanenka, a Belarus-born filmmaker and sound producer, has created a video titled The Rise Of Belarusians To Defeat the Dictator to tell the world about all the events happening in his home country.
“Imagine you are waking up in the morning, going to a local bakery to buy some bread for you and your family, but you’ll come back only 15 days later as you’ll spend this time in jail. Imagine that you are walking down the street having the white strip on your wrist because you want to show to others that you support some idea, but you’ll wake up in the intensive care of the local hospital handcuffed with broken limbs and smashed faace you can’t recognise in the mirror.
This is not fiction. This is what’s happening right now in Belarus – the country where law and justice haven’t been working for 26 years. My country. […] In this video I want to tell you how much pain and hatred Belarusian nation has right now because of just one person who 26 years ago stole from us the constitution, the national symbols, the rights to vote, human rights – all basic rights just to guarantee himself the possibility to rule the country till the end of his days.”
