EU Film Month: Please Vote for Me, 6:30 pm

European Union in the Kyrgyz Republic is announcing a film month — a number of films will be shown every week at ololohaus as a part of #EU4Democracy campaign. This week it's Please Vote for Me, a documentary by Weijun Chen. 'PR, pre-election technologies, bribery, blackmail and pressure on voters - what can the children know about this? The answer is: everything. Children are skilled manipulators, they feel the weaknesses of people more thinly and use these techniques very skillfully. Do we ourselves raise children so that they grow up and know how to behave "rightly" in civil society? Or they just listen to ambitious parents who want a "position", career growth and power to their child, being with him side by side in this fight?' The film will be in Chinese with English subtitles.
