Diaflim Live is a project led by a group of Minsk actors and musicians who voice soviet filmstrips. It’s not a standard voicing you might think of, but rather a whole new interpretation complemented by live acting and music.
Diafilm live revives not only old filmstrips but also childhood memories of many people (or those magic home night screenings!). Although filmstrips were originally produced for children, guys play with symbols and allusions primarily meant for adults. Additionally, there are special screenings for kids.
Most of the filmstrips are voiced in Russian, nevertheless, foreigners come too, as they’re something in-between concerts and theatre performances. I’ve been following Diafilm Live since the beginning (including the very first screenings) and I can assure you that performances only get better with time. Just check some of the short videos to get a glimpse of them.
Besides, Diafilm live’s team picks cool spots for screenings (Azhur musem, OK16, Korpus, “Ў” Gallery), so you can seize the occasion to get to know more about the cultural life of Minsk. Keep an eye on Diafilm live’s facebook page to check the next events.
