Screening: Open Access + Q&A

Screening Friday 4 April 2014, 7:00 PM

The screening will be followed by a Q&A via Skype with Ukrainian journalist and protagonist Sergii 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.

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′
