truth reveals itself as subjective as filmmaker Yury Khashchavatski attempts
to discover how an astounding 83% of the population of Belarus voted for the
president who has stayed in power for fifteen years despite the blatant
corruption of his administration and a complete failure to provide even the
most basic public services. In March of 2006, Republic of Belarus President
Alexander Lukashenko told the people of his country, "You have no other
choice, you will vote for me!" Khashchavatski and his crew had started
filming in January of 2006, just three months before the elections. As the
director speaks with people of the country's small but emerging democratic
movement, history is held up to recent events as the falsehoods of official propaganda
are exposed and a dictator's supreme arrogance is carefully deconstructed.
