The festival program includes concerts, cinema and theater shows. There will be the performance of Marharyta Liauchuk, Palina Respublika and Krywi, movies of Aliaksei Paluyan and Andrei Kutsila, a theatrical performance of Ihar Shuhaleyeu about tortures in Belarusian prisons, an exhibition of portraits of political prisoners by artist Ksisha Anhelava, DJ set of Papa Bo. There will also be a panel discussion on the current situation in Belarusian culture and society. It will be attended by politicians and public figures from Belarus and Germany.
