Jeremy Irons signs petition against censorship in Belarus

Prominent arts figures across the country have united by signing a petition calling upon the President of Belarus to respect fundamental human rights and abolish repressive censorship laws. Signatories of the petition include Jeremy Irons.

Index and the Young Vic present “Belarus: Zone of Silence”
10 Nov 2010
Jude Law, Ian McKellen and Sam West take to the stage in support of Belarus Free Theatre

Main House, Young Vic Theatre 5 December 2010

“When people are being kidnapped and killed, then you have to take action to change things in your country”
(Natalia Koliada, co-founder of Belarus Free Theatre).

Index on Censorship presents the internationally acclaimed Belarus Free Theatre (Being Harold Pinter/ Generation Jeans, Soho) at the Young Vic performing the UK premiere of Discover Love with guest appearances by famous names including Jude Law, Ian McKellen and Sam West.

This double bill event, which includes their hard-hitting piece Numbers, takes place just two weeks before the Belarusian presidential election on 19 December. Under the oppressive rule of Alexander Lukashenko, Belarus is one of the world’s least free countries; ranked worse than Iran for press freedom and worse than Zimbabwe for human rights.

Belarus Free Theatre stages underground and uncensored performances to draw attention to the problems faced in Europe’s last dictatorship. Although banned in their home country where they perform in secrecy, this multi award-winning company has established a global reputation of artistic excellence. Their many supporters and patrons include Tom Stoppard, Mick Jagger and Václav Havel.

The last few months have been particularly difficult for BFT with the suspicious death of their close friend and partner, respected journalist Oleg Bebenin — a case that has received widespread international attention. Members of the company have also received death threats and been imprisoned.

This one-off event at the Young Vic is part of Index on Censorship’s campaign to highlight the appalling state of free expression in Belarus and a show of solidarity for BFT from the UK arts community. Prominent arts figures across the country have united by signing a petition calling upon the President of Belarus to respect fundamental human rights and abolish these repressive laws. Signatories include Jeremy Irons, Hanif Kureishi, Juliet Stevenson, Michael Sheen, Katie Mitchell, Neil Tennant, David Lan, Michael Attenborough, Dominic Cooke, Alistair Spalding, Stephen Daldry, Neil Bartlett, Paul Greengrass, Eve Best, Sean Holmes, Michael Morris, Dominic Dromgoole, Ramin Gray, Mark Rubinstein, Daniel Evans, Carrie Cracknell and Natalie Abrahami.

At the Young Vic, BFT will present Discover Love, the powerful and moving love story of Irina Krasovskaya and her husband Anatoli Krasovsky, a supporter of the Belarusian democratic forces who was abducted and disappeared in Belarus in 1999. Numbers is a startling piece using physicality, sound and projections to illustrate statistics detailing the bleak reality of Lukashenko’s oppressive regime.

Jeremy Irons Supports the BUYACREDIT.com Project

Jeremy Irons has lent his support to the BUYACREDIT.com Project.

from the http://www.buyacredit.com blog post:

“The incomparable Jeremy Irons has also given us his full support. We haven’t yet had the privilege of meeting him, but we’ve been in constant contact with his lovely assistant …who has been filling Jeremy in on our progress. Just a few days ago, Jeremy told us that we had his full support in making “Clovis Dardentor” and following through on the BUYACREDIT.COM project.

It’s an unbeatable feeling to know that such BIG stars back us in what we’re doing. Jude Law, Sir Ian McKellen, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg, Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Phillip Schofield, Joanna Lumley… AH, there are too many!”

Read the full blog entry at BUYACREDIT.com Project.

The legendary and incomparable Academy Award winning screen and stage actor, Jeremy Irons is a strong supporter of BUYACREDIT.COM and a producer on the film. Jeremy has been a source of behind-the-scenes support and guidance since early on in the project, and has now given us his full public backing. To have the endorsement of such a revered and respected figure-head in the movie industry is just staggering, and as such, there are no words that can aptly or deservedly describe how we feel about having him involved.

BUYACREDIT.COM is a project aiming to raise a movie’s budget by selling its end credits online. For just $10 you can help fund a film, become a Movie Producer alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names and see your OWN name roll down on the end credits of the movie. Give enough and you could find yourself amongst the Top 100 Producers, an exclusive club that entitles you to a truck-load of awesome perks. Alternatively, for $100 you can take full advantage of BUYACREDIT.COM by advertising your website on our Pixel-Ad Wall. Every cent raised goes towards the movie’s $2 Million budget.

The movie is “Clovis Dardentor” (IMDB), a film based on a forgotten novel of the same name by the legendary author, Jules Verne. We have turned to the public to help us raise its budget. Through BUYACREDIT.COM we are asking anyone and everyone to become movie producers and to help fund the film.

Because the public are indeed, the movie’s producers, we are keeping the production of “Clovis Dardentor” open. You will be able to keep up to date through the blog, Twitter, newsletters and our regular video blogs. Our aim is to immerse our supporters in every single aspect of the project and the movie’s production, whilst also encouraging our producers to have their say on how things are done. We are essentially creating a real-time ‘Making Of’ for all to see.

Dan Poole Poole & Giles Terrera are trying to raise £25k to finish shooting their docu/feature on William Shakespeare entitled, ‘Muse of fire’.

Up to now they have self-funded the project at some wonderfully monstrous expense, but they’re at a bit of a brick wall and need your help.

All donators of this marvelous £10, would receive a credit on the film- yes that’s at least 10,002 credits probably a few more, and one in every thousand contributors will be interviewed for the film, about their donation.

Contact the filmmakers at: info@museoffirefilm.co.uk

Dan and Giles have a facebook group Muse of Fire – A Documentary – Facebook group which you can join to help support the film.

Here’s the teaser trailer for their documentary:

Jeremy helps raise funds for a new cricket pavilion

Former PM backs new pavilion

FORMER prime minister Sir John Major was the guest of honour at a dinner to raise funds for Nettlebed Cricket Club’s new pavilion.

It was held at Manor Farm, Nettlebed, the home of Bessie Kelart, last Friday, when 125 guests enjoyed a champagne reception before sitting down to a three-course meal.

Sir John, who was introduced by local actors Jeremy Irons and Simon Williams, entertained the guests with cricket stories before an auction of 15 lots was held, with Tim Eggar acting as auctioneer.

By the end of the evening a total of £21,000 had been raised towards the £80,000 needed to replace the current pavilion, which was built more than 100 years ago.
