What is DOCU/SPACE?
It is the first online cinema house in Ukraine, which presents documentary films on human rights. All the movies are about Ukrainians and filmed in Ukraine with the support of different NGOs in association with International Documentary Human Rights Film Festival Docudays UA. The characters are ordinary people who try to change the life in their country for the better. They go towards their aim insistently overcoming the external difficulties.
Why do we need DOCU/SPACE?
Our goal is to inspire viewers for active actions by offering the stories of ordinary people. These people could be your colleagues, neighbors in the country, they can commute the same bus, they do not do anything supernatural. Thanks to somebody who has founded and headed up UABC (Unions of Apartment Block Co-Owners) tower block residents pay justified price for the public services; somebody has grown up in Roma settlement but has got a higher education and founded Legal advice office for Roma; somebody has raised the money and clothes for soldiers in a time of foreign military aggression. Characters of the movies are united by pursuing justice, making good causes and acknowledging that the state starts from people.
