On January 12, in Sofia, in Gallery 2.0, we presented the film WAITING FOR COLOR to the director and choreographer Kosta Karakashian.

Waiting For Color is a documentary that reveals the serious reality of the persecution of LGBTI + people in Chechnya. The product is produced by Kosta Karakashian and Studio Karakashian and is distributed in partnership with Single Step.

Its content is inspired by the confessions of arrests, torture and blackmail that gay citizens have been subjected to since 2017. Using the memories of 33 bold survivors who share their stories anonymously, the film explores topics such as paranoia, trauma and hope.

A dazzling dance in our minds, the author aims to cope with the emotions Chechnya prisoners face: brutality, sense of supervision and helplessness.

We urge you to share the movie with your loved ones and online and keep track of the cause.
