Dear Revolution

Dear Revolution,
should I join you?
Or stay away,
and regret this for the rest of my life?

Dear Revolution
is my song for a
Revolution in Belarus
that has never come to
an end.
It is my song of hopes,
expectations, and fears,
sung just before
unprecedented protests
and state terror shook
my homeland.
It is the promise of
those warm August
nights of 2020.

A film essay,
duration 12 minutes.
