Q&A with Yoani Sánchez and director Barbara Miller, led by Peter Rhebergen, followed by ESC Control Talkshow.   

 

The Talk show about journalistic dilemma's in a digital era will be presented by Daphne van der Kroft (XS4all). Other guests include WikiLeaks: Secrets and Lies director Patrick Forbes; Chinese blogger Zola from High Tech, Low Life; Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez from Forbidden Voices, who became world famous with her blog 'Generación Y'; MEP Marietje Schaake, writer of the first Digital Freedom Strategy for the European Union and Yvette Alberdingk Thijm, director of Witness, winner of the Information Knight Challenge.

 

 

It is a small miracle that Yoani Sánchez, portrayed in Forbidden Voices, will actually be attending the Movies that Matter Festival. Or maybe even a big miracle. For years she attempted to obtain an exit visa,  which was refused to Cubans who openly criticise the Communist regime. Read more about Yoani Sánchez.
