Assange to host London film Q&A March 1

Posted on February 17, 2012


A March 1 screening of the film Europe’s Last Dictator in London (U.K.) will be followed by a Q&A session with Julian Assange. The English PEN website announces:

“Europe’s Last Dictator is a new film from Guerrilla Pictures. Filmed over the past year, it exposes torture, state-sponsored murder and kidnap inside the Belarus of President Aleksandr Lukashenko. From the perspective of Irina Bogdanova, an acupuncturist from southern England, and sister of imprisoned presidential candidate Andrei Sannikov, the documentary charts the violent crackdown on the country’s opposition following the rigged election of 2010. This is Irina’s story. It is a personal and emotional journey. But it is no longer just about her brother. Now she’s doing everything she can to bring down Europe’s Last Dictator. Much of the documentary has been filmed undercover. It paints a picture of Lukashenko’s disturbed character and offers a rare glimpse inside one of the world’s most under-reported places.” The film trailer is here:
