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.

Ma by Maria Stoianova, 2016 (English Subtitles), 17 Min.
Mom is feeding great tits from the window of her high-rise building in Mariupol, and growing queen apples in her summerhouse near the battle line. To show her simple life, she shoots videos on her small camera for her daughter, who lives in the capital and is hard to reach. To try to keep the conversation going, she feeds her overgrown child with morel mushrooms and fairytales.

Unavailable by Nіkon Romanchenko, 2018 (English Subtitles), 28 Min.
Lyuba works at a pastry shop. Her son is in the war zone and out of communication. The mother goes in search of her son in a territory unknown to her.

Avdiivka National Museum by Piotr Armianovski, 2018 (English Subtitles), 6 Min.
The main exposition of the museum in Avdiivka was dedicated to the Caucasus. In 2015, exposition was partly destroyed due to the Russian projectile. But now in Avdiivka there is again a people’s museum – a place where the most wonderful ideas come to life.

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.
