US, OUR PETS AND THE WAR / МИ, НАШІ УЛЮБЛЕНЦІ ТА ВІЙНА

2024 / 81' / Ukraine, Canada

“Us, our pets and the war” is a film about life, humanity, as well as an incredibly close connection between people and animals, which even more strongly was highlighted by the war in Ukraine.

The main characters of the film are not only cats, dogs, bears, lions, lemurs and the Yemeni chameleon “Igoryok”, but also people who rescue them, risking their own lives. These are the stories of soldiers and volunteers, foreigners and Ukrainians, who help animals in bomb shelters and on the front line, at home and abroad. But the most interesting thing can be seen through the whole story – when it seemed that we were saving animals, in reality, it was animals that saved us.
