2023 / 83' / Poland, Germany

As Western World struggled to understand the convention-breaking atrocities of the russian army in Ukraine, European citizens joined forces to welcome nearly 8 million refugees fleeing the country. What happened to those who stayed or who returned home? Can home even be called “home” under the circumstances? Filmmakers Piotr Pawlus and Tomasz Wolski depart on a challenging mission to show, rather than tell, what is going on in shelled-out cities and burnt-down villages.

19.08, 19:30, Chernivtsi Concert Hall (10 Universitetska Street, Chernivtsi)
