Free Voices by Docwave

edition 2021


“Free Voices” is a project about a Belarusian partisan choir that appears unexpectedly in various public places and performs songs of resistance with their faces covered. This encourages and inspires Belarusians to continue their struggle for freedom. The authorities began a real hunt for choir members and have already subjected many of them to repression. As we follow the choir during breathtaking performances and listen to authentic songs, we observe the courageous and creative history of Belarusian protest.



This is a collaboration of documentary filmmakers who joined forces in 2020 to fix the important transformation Belarus underwent after the presidential election. We have to hide our faces and names to avoid arrest as all shooting activities are strictly controlled.
