Femen's adventures in Belarus at Venice film festival


Australian Kitty Green's "Ukraine Not A Brothel" documentary was selected by the jury for out-of-competition screening.

The film depicts the history of the Femen movement in Ukraine till the moment of its transformation into an international movement.

Femen leader Hanna Hutsol has commented that the Minsk action of December 19, 2011 was also included into the documentary. The activists held a performance right at the KGB office doorsteps then.

The 70th Venezia film festival will take place on August 28-September 7. Legendary director Bernardo Bertolucci heads the jury.
