Whether it’s funny spats with neighbours or protests for the freedom and democracy of a country, the films in this programme put us at the heart of the inevitable conflict. Images from the past, revisited, begin to tell a different narrative. A room in a Berlin apartment becomes a torture cell for anti-Lukashenko protesters, where the re-enactment of events reveals a systemic crackdown on innocent people. A dance of death for freedom, a forest fire and wilted flowers in a garden that turn out to be not so easy to forgive – all in the Head-on programme.
