Minsk - a videoguide

Magdalena Pytlakowska, 2013 | Association of Creative Initiatives ę (Poland)

Violating human rights is a common practice in Belarus. Magdalena Pytlakowska, a Pole who works at the independent Belarussian TV Belsat, uses its archive to prepare a wrong-headed portrait of the city. The short video could be broadcast by some propaganda TV station to lure tourists if it weren't for the fact that the host invites us to places related to the ruthless regime of Lukashenka (e.g. reminding of the issue of death penalty in Belarus).
