On August 10, 2020, the entire world was shaken by news from Belarus that included the dreaded word, OKRESTINA.
The name of a street that even the Belarusians didn't know about until that date.
It is there that the temporary detention center, which for several days was turned into a place of unbearable pain, tears, cruel beatings and suffering of relatives and people who cared about them, was located.
Okrestina has become a collective image of evil, cruelty and injustice.
Okrestina is the place where real heroes for freedom and honesty appeared.
The aim of the series is to show to the world the history of the Belarusian people in their quest to be free from the regime and dictatorship, and to highlight the events that continue to this day in Belarus.
The series will consist of stories and will cover the period from May 2020 to break down the details of the events of the presidential campaign.
The stories will be based on real events, not only about the victims of the regime, but also about workers in the security forces, the Interior Ministry, the courts, and other government agencies.
The mission is not just to shoot the series, but to do it with professional equipment, the rent of which requires a significant amount of money.
Our creative team would like to thank everyone who cares about the story and respond to help.
