The premiere of the 2019 Swedish-Georgian drama film - And Then We Danced, directed by Levan Akin, is scheduled to be held at Tbilisi and Batumi cinemas today. The members of the “Georgian March” plan to hold a protest rally at 4:00pm today. Sandro Bregadze, one of the leaders of the “Georgian March”, said the members and supporters of the movement will gather at the Philharmonic Hall to express “peace protest” against the planned premier of the film “And Then We

Sandro Bregadze said the protesters plan to make so-called “corridor of shame” at the entrance of Amirani Cinema and those, who intend to attend the film premiere, will have to walk through it.

Bregadze explained that the members and supporters of the “Georgian March” are against the “gay propaganda” and not against the people of a different sexual orientation.

Another gathering is planned in the Vera park in Tbilisi.

Supporters of Georgian businessman Levan Vasadze will gather in the Vera park in Tbilisi to protest the screening of the film “And then we danced” at 16:00, and in Batumi at 17:00. Levan Vasadze will also attend the gathering.

As a member of Vasadze’s team, Konstantin Morgoshia, stated, the main goal of their protest is to prevent the film from showing.

He explained that their supporters from Western Georgia would join the planned rally in Batumi.

“Our goal is to prevent the film from showing. If they wanted to make a film about love, then why couldn’t they make a film about the love of a man and a woman, when most of Sukhishvili’s dances are based on man’s respect for a woman, ”Morgoshia said.

As for the form of protest, he said, "the form will be as the situation will bring."

When asked whether they intend to come to the rally with batons, Morgoshia said that "there will be no batons."
