DOC Lounge

In collaboration with Doc Lounge ILT Festival 2021 is hosting a number of events with documentaries which in different ways are about theater. After the film screening there will be a panel debate and the audience is invited to participate.

Theatre in the 21st Century: Debut

What is the role of theater in the 21st century?
The award-winning documentary


follows female prisoners in a Belarusian prison where they, as first-time offenders, serve sentences of five to 25 years. The prolonged isolation fills the women with fear of being forever separated from their families and friends and it is particularly difficult for the women who have children. Theater exercises and preparing a play help a group of women not to lose themselves.

Anastasiya Miroshnichenko's touching documentary provides a rare glimpse behind the "Iron Curtain," showing how theater can become a way of finding oneself under extreme conditions.
After the film we will host a panel discussion about the techniques that theater can provide within storytelling, interpretation and - maybe healing. The audience is invited to participate.

Information about panelists will follow.
