Support Ukraine through Film Screenings
From Leif Persson
At the last open meeting, we met with Nataliie Movshovych, Head of Film at the Ukrainian Institute and we discussed presenting Ukrainian films whilst also fundraising for humanitarian support in Ukraine.
Nataliie Movshovych sent us a list of different relevant movies which could be used for such purposes, from which we have selected 5. If you chose to use one of the movies, please be sure to get in touch with the local distributor and clear your rights for showing the movie in public.
- Klondike (2022) by Maryna Er Gorbach, a freshly made film that focuses on the story of a local Ukrainian family trapped at the epicenter of the crash of MH17. In 2022 it won Directing Award at Sundance (World Cinema - Dramatic) and two awards of Berlinale Panorama.
