Ukrainian cinema is facing new challenges during the war. In the times of full-scale aggression, Ukraine has to oppose misinformation and propaganda which Russia tries to broadcast in the civilised world. So cinema becomes an important instrument to demonstrate the realities of the war and its impact on people’s lives, and to remind the world what the value of freedom is all about.

In this public reading, we will talk with the books about:

  • What should Ukrainian cinema be like during the war and how has the industry changed?

  • How does the film industry affect the popularisation of Ukraine in the world?

  • What should state support for cinema look like during the war?
