'Children 404' in Utrecht, Maastricht and Leiden
Tonight at 19:00 hrs at Louis Hartlooper Complex, Utrecht; at 19:30 hrs Lumière, Maastricht and at 20:00 hrs at Theater Ins Blau, Leiden the documentary Children 404 will be screened.
Teenage life is not always easy. It is especially hard for the LGBT youth of Russia. Ever since Putin passed his ‘anti-gay law’ in 2013 the young LGBT community is now defenseless against insults and intimidation. Psychologists, teachers and even parents can be fined or imprisoned for supporting them. Children 404 offers an online platform through which these Russian teens and tweens can share their stories. Through anonymous interviews and video diaries, the film shows their humiliations and discriminations, as well as their courageous stands against bullies.
