Amerikanka. All Included


The film features journalist and writer Alyaksandr Fyaduta’s being in the internal prison of the Belarusian KGB, the so-called Amerikanka. After the 2010 presidential elections the author spent 110 days there and described his prison experience in a book. The film makers aimed at showing the rigors of being in custody by means of literature and changed the genre of drama to that of ironic comedy. As a result, a state juggernaut turns into a caricature of itself.Director Viktar Korzun, Belarus, 2014.
