Frontline Club - Screening on the roots of the crisis in Ukraine


[vd]On Friday 4 April the Frontline Club will explore the roots of the crisis in Ukraine with the screening of Open Access followed by a Q&A via Skype with Ukrainian journalist and protagonist Sergiy Leshchenko. In 2011 the law ‘On Access to Public Information’ was adopted in Ukraine. This new law made it possible to request information from state authorities, revealing information that was previously inaccessible. Open Access brings together five stories of people in different parts of the country trying to invoke the law to access information. Told by five directors, these stories all illustrate the lack of transparency, indifference, and lack of responsibility by the country’s leaders. In the same year, five people from different parts of the country tried to invoke the law to reveal corrupt and frustratingly bureaucratic government officials. Open Access brings together these five stories, told by five directors, all illustrating the lack of transparency, indifference, dominance of private motifs and lack of responsibility by the country’s leaders. Directed by Volodymyr Tykhyy, Serhiy Andrushko, Jeanne Dovhych, Dmytro Konovalov and Dmytro Tiazhlov Duration: 98′ Year: 2013   Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Pl, London W2 1QJ Full details here: http://frontlineclub.bookinglive.com/home/events-and-screenings/screening-open-access-q-and-a/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuyVXCuDDeI [/vd]
