Thursday 9 March
12.45 pm to 2.00 pm
Werstas Auditorium (Väinö Linnan aukio 8)
The Magnitsky Act – Behind The Scenes, a documentary film by Andrei Nekrasov, has stirred up debates about freedom of speech at film festivals – more precisely, festivals’ right to screen controversial documentary pieces.
The conversation at Werstas Auditorium will revolve around how people using political, economical and sometimes even direct physical power might interfere with freedom of speech and whether or not money can buy you silence. Nekrasov’s documentary provides a starting point for discussion and will be shown before the event at National Competition 3 at 10.00 am.
The discussion will be carried out in English. Participants: directors Andrei Nekrasov, Khadija Ben-Fradj and E.G. Bailey. No sign-up required, free entry. Welcome!
