Film series „8 Years of War in Ukraine: Voices of Ukrainian Filmmakers“
News from Apr 05, 2022
The film series is organized in cooperation between the Media Library of the Institute for East European Studies at Freie Universität Berlin and the Ukrainian Film Festival Berlin (UFFB). The series brings together three films (documentary and feature films) by Ukrainian filmmakers that mark contemporary Ukrainian cinema in the context of the war with Russia, which has been going on for eight years now.
The aim of the series is to open different perspectives on the war, realized in different narratives and visual representations: a post-apocalyptic industrial horror, a reflection on the long-term effects of the war, a documentary of life in wartime, where even small details suddenly receive new meaning.
What unites the films in the series are the voices of Ukrainian filmmakers who lived and shot in Ukraine before and during the war, and whose works illuminate the specific context from a multidimensional perspective.
All screenings will be accompanied by expert talks + a fundraiser for Docudays UA, which will address questions about the current role of art, the visibility of Ukrainian filmmakers in times of war, and the future of Ukrainian cinema with invited filmmakers and guests.
