Oleg Sentsov at the Frontline Club

Photograph of an event held at the Frontline Club in London on 15 November, the day of PEN International’s annually observed Day of the Imprisoned Writer, in 2019. At this event the Ukranian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was in conversation with Natalia Koliada (end on the left), director of the Belarus Free Theatre, and the British playwright David Lan before a screening of the documentary The Trial: The State of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov. Sentsov, who was imprisoned in May 2014 for protesting the annexation of Crimea and spent more than five years of detention in a penal colony, can be seen here receiving over 150 letters sent to him whilst in prison from Carles Torner, executive director of PEN International (2014-20) and chair of the Translation and Linguistic Rights Committee (1996-2002).
