In Belarussia, Alexandre Loukachenko – ‘Europe’s last dictator’ – has been in power for 15 years. Miron is a rocker and politics is not really his thing. Still, one thing leads to another and he ends up giving a concert in the context of a demonstration against those in power. The punishment is 15 months in the Belarusian army. It’s a fair bet that it’s going to be a hard slog. Filmed without a filter on a hand-held camera byKrzysztof Łukaszewicz, the barbaric acts of the army and Belarusian KGB send shivers down your spine.… The story is
based on the – real life – events in the life of Frank Viachorka, an activist in the Belarusian opposition.

Poland, 2012, 98 min, Original version + fr/nl/eng subtitles

After the much-fêted Galerianki, Kasia Rosłaniec returns with a new film which was given a very warm reception at the Berlin Film Festival where it came away with the Crystal Bear (Generation 14Plus Selection)

Natalia, a teenager. Kuba, a teenager. Antoś, their son. Does Natalia love Kuba? Does Kuba love Natalia? That’s not really the right question. She wanted her son. After all, celebrities have children. Nicole Ricchie has Harlow Winter Kate and Sparrow James Midnight, Britney Spears has Sean Preston and Jayden James. She had Antoś. If you want to find out about having a child at her age, well, people talk about it on web forums, you can read about it in gossip magazines. In the end, what counts is you have someone to
love, someone who loves you in return.
_____Casting: Katarzyna Figura, Magdalena Boczarska, Renata Dancewicz, Magdalena Berus, Nikodem Rozbicki, Klaudia Bułka, Michał Trzeciakowski
