The film program curated by Nadia Parfan shall give Ukrainians a voice through their film makers and provide insights into a war that started many years ago without being noticed by the rest of the world.

TRAIN KYIV-WAR by Korniy Grytsiuk, 2020 (English Subtitles), 72 Min.

Only 12 hours away from peaceful Kyiv is Kostyantynivka, a small industrial city in the eastern part of the country, immediately after which the front begins. This entire time people with different characters, social status,political views and beliefs are traveling on thetrain side by side. They talk, debate, even quarrel, but speak to each other and go in commondirection. And what`s important, they all want to get to peace.

The program was put together in collaboration with Nadia Parfan, film maker, co-founder of 86 Festival of Film and Urbanism and part of TAKFLIX, the only streaming service for Ukrainian cinema.

All presented films are made available for free by TAKFLIX. All donations will go to local organizations within Ukraine, since they know best what they need right now. We will report and inform you what the money was used for.
