RFE/RL And Current Time Celebrate Freedom On August 21

Hundreds of viewers poured in to the outdoor cinema venue of Kasarna Karlin on the evening of August 21, 2018 for a celebration of democracy and freedom with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), its 24/7 Russian-language digital and TV network Current Time, and partner KineDoc.

To mark 50 years to the day since the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, RFE/RL, Current Time and KineDoc hosted the premiere screening of the film Occupation 1968.

The film is an exploration of “occupation as the occupants see it.” 5 countries of the Warsaw Pact occupied Czechoslovakia in 1968. 50 years later, 5 directors from these countries each made a short film about the invasion from the point of view of the people who took part in it.

Deputy Foreign Minister of the Czech Republic Jakub Durr provided opening remarks.

The screening followed concerts by Monika Naceva, DJ Tentato and DJ Five.
