Short documentary premiere: With four you can play bridge
It’s been over a year of anti-goverment protests, Rog is gone, Metelkova is being threatened, and the intimidating presence of the police in the streets is increasing. The rise of the authoritarianism of the current right-wing government is becoming impossible to ignore. How do we fight the emerging fear and the despondency? The short documentary With Four You Can Play Bridge follows Edi as he tries to grapple with what the current situation might mean for his activism. Starting from his own experience with queer activism in Ljubljana, Edi starts looking outward to other contexts and movements in the rest of Slovenia, as well as in Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Czech Republic. What can we learn from our fellow activists from Visegrád? What are the common struggles we are facing? What strategies and tactics can we employ and, more importantly, how do we preserve the momentum of our movements in these increasingly hostile times?
The short documentary With Four You Can Play Bridge was produced by the Youth Section of Ljubljana Pride Association. The event of the documentary’s premiere will be preceded by a literary gathering titled We Lessen the Grip of Walls.
