Event Details

in 2017, reports about persecution, torture and assassination of lgbtiq* people in chechnya made waves in the international press. ramzan kadyrov, chechen leader, who is strongly backed by the kremlin, denied all accusations and even the existence of queer people in chechnya. david france’s film is dedicated to the work of a moscow based group of activists, who have come together to save queer lives and smuggle people out of chechnya. using deepfake technology and with the support of volunteers, who „lent“ their faces to those affected, the film allows to maintain the activists‘ anonymity.
