No, we did not want to present a lot of Ukrainian documentaries, we chose precisely the works that we think are the horns of generations of young Ukrainian citizens: we wept, laughed and greeted gladly while watching them.
On October 15th on the last day of the festival at 2pm, we’ll screen Ukrainian documentaries that are voices of the young generation of Ukrainians.
Majority of the authors will present films personally.
