“Twice we went into the streets. Twice the police drove us away. Twice the news media embedded behind the police lines portrayed us all as hooligans and criminals. Things looked different on our side of the police line.” The viewers find themselves in the middle of the third Maribor uprising in Slovenia. Stay on “Freedom Square” and protest peacefully with the others? Or put banners and whistles aside to have your hands free for a rougher form of protest? This participatory film forces its viewers again and again to choose – experienced individually in the exhibition and as a cinema experience with collective voting.
