18:45, 11 February 2019

The production team of 'Mr. Jones' film participated in Berlinale. Before the film was premiered, they called on the Russian government to release political prisoner Oleg Sentsov, who currently serves time at a penal colony in Labytnangi, northern Russia.

Before the film was screened, the team held a flash mob right at the red carpet of the festival, holding 'FreeSentsov' and 'Freedom of speech is not a crime' banners, as well as Sentsov's images.
