'Children 404' in The Hague and Den Bosch
This afternoon at 14.00 hrs at Filmhuis Den Haag and at 15:00 hrs at Verkadefabriek, Den Bosch 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.
