Don’t miss the first screening of the thought-provoking documentary “Mariupol. Unlost Hope” on 26th May. The film uses audio recordings of eyewitness testimony from two men and three women who were living in Mariupol when the Russian invasion began on February 24, 2022.
“Carols of the Bells” is a poignant movie featured in the 2023 program. It follows the peaceful coexistence of three families – Polish, Ukrainian, and Jewish – whose lives are shattered by Nazi and Soviet occupations of Ukraine. The film explores themes of sacrifice, loss, and hope while highlighting the healing power of love and music.
