When Flowers Are Not Silent looks at the aftermath of protests in Belarus against the country’s long-standing leader Alexander Lukashenka – who in 2020 claimed more than 80% of all votes – after the European Union, local opposition and a large part of the population called foul on the election results.
Seen from the perspective of a series of women caught up in the protests in different ways (the film is dedicated to Kutsila’s sister and “all of the brave women protesters of Belarus”) it refrains from angry polemic and instead focuses on their sadness, bravery and resilience.
