The annually recurring festival Night of the Dictatorship – the stimulating counterpart of the Day of Democracy – has the central question this year: “Which truth do you choose?” What stories do you believe when it comes to power, politics and authority? And what do you do to find out if that is the truth?
On Friday , September 13, 2019 , the Night of the Dictatorship will take place at ProDemos in The Hague. In the same week, the Night of the Dictatorship will visit Amsterdam ( De Balie), Rotterdam (Arminius) and Groningen (Studium Generale) .
On Friday September 13th 2019 the Night of the Dictatorships will take place at ProDemos in The Hague.
The Night of the Dictatorship originated as a counterpart to the Day of Democracy, which was proclaimed by the UN on 15 September. The Night of the Dictatorship was created to pay attention to freedom, democracy and the rule of law in a different way. We do this in all sorts of ways: from debate and lecture to dinner and from film screening to interview.
The Night of the Dictatorships is an initiative of ProDemos and a collaboration with partners such as Filmhuis The Hague, International Press Centre Nieuwspoort and the Prison Gate Museum.
