Srdjan Dragojevic's controversial comedy Parada will be screened at the Congress Hotel in Yerevan on Oct. 17 and 18.
Parada is a Serbian drama dealing with the delicate subject of gay rights in Serbia. The film focuses on an attempt to organise the Belgrade gay pride parade, after a first attempt in 2001 ended violently. The film gained international attention after its release in October 2011. It was successfully shown at the 2012 Berlinale film festival where it won the Audience Award for the Best Feature Film.
Given the public uproar provoked by the screening of the film, the German Embassy in Yerevan and the Delegation of the European Union to Armenia had to reschedule public screenings planned for the second week of October.
The film screening is part of the EU activities related to Human Rights Day 2012.
