A family uses their passion for filmmaking to escape daily life of armed conflict in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region in this touching portrait of resilience.
Young aspiring cinematographer Myroslava Trofymchuk, and her mother, brothers and sisters, reject the endless monotony of war and take control of their place in the world by filming it. Director Iryna Tsilyk is brought into the fold to record how they recreate traumatic moments and capture their search for joyful release through playful creativity. Tsilyk’s debut feature is an unexpectedly heartwarming take on the war documentary, told through the lens of filmmaking itself.
