We are happy to share with you that the first film screening under The Price of Freedom and Democracy project was held with students in Sofia on the 22nd of April 2021.
The first activity of the project was the screening of the documentary „Breath” (1988). The film was followed with a discussion with students at the 10th grade from the 35 High School in Sofia. The film portrays the very first wave of civil movements in Bulgaria. The students enhanced their knowledge about the recent Bulgarian history, learnt about the origins of contemporary civil society, and accessed their current liberties. During the follow-up discussion, the students elaborated on democratic concepts and their meaning for their community.
In the next few months, another 17 documentaries will be presented before young people in six EU countries – Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland and Romania.
