'Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus'

HBO Documentary Films, on a roll this year with a new spate of programming, has acquired U.S. television rights to the social revolution doc "Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus" ahead of the film's world premiere at TIFF this weekend.

"Dangerous Acts" highlights the work of the award-winning Belarus Free Theatre group, which challenges social and political issues in Belarus, currently under the regime of Alexander Lukashenko. All of the founders of BFT -- Natalia Kaliada, Vladimir Shcherban and Nikolai Khalezin -- currently live in exile in London.

Featuring smuggled footage and uncensored interviews, "Dangerous Acts" is an intimate look at a contemporary revolution as it goes behind the scenes of artists fighting for their work and safety. Directed by Madeleine Sackler (2010's "The Lottery"), the film will debut on HBO in 2014.
