Trailer for the Emmy nominated documentary comedy.
Belarus, Europe's last dictatorship, is ruled by the despotic hand of Alexander Lukashenko. The ex-Soviet leader has virtually silenced all but one critic - lone performance artist Alexander Pushkin. He stages public stunts mocking the dictators pretensions. Belarusian Waltz is a comic documentary film, an offbeat tale of post-modern street theater meeting 1930s-style authoritarianism. The film offers a surprising window into the soul of the Belarusian people.
Belarusian Waltz was nominated for Prix Europa and the European Film Academy Award for Best Documentary Film.
