Public Defender Would Like to Attend the Premiere of 'And Then We Danced'

"No one can forbid or determine what kind of film should be made, released or watched," the Public Defender comments on the ever-rising debate over the Swedish-Georgian film in Georgian society.

‘And Then We Danced’ will be premiered in Georgia tomorrow, and the screenings will continue until November 10. The movie has raised much controversy in Georgian society, though (or maybe for that exact reason) all the tickets for ‘And Then We Danced’ are sold out.

While the right-wing groups threaten to disrupt the movie screenings, the MIA ensures a safe and peaceful development of events, and the Public Defender claims that she “would be happy to attend it if she had the tickets”.  By saying that it shouldn’t be determined what a movie is about, Lomjaria supports the freedom of expression.

“We heard that they are going to block buildings, their entrances, disrupt the premiere of the movie - that is a direct threat. That is not an area protected by freedom of expression and that is why we urged both the protesters and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to take necessary measures to ensure that the freedom of movement of others, their rights, and the safety of others is not jeopardized. I hope that any complication will be avoided,” adds Ombudsman Lomjaria.

Lomjaria, further notes that freedom of creativity is guaranteed by the constitution of our country.
