The reality we live in now is being recorded by thousands of professional and amateur cameras. When the full-scale invasion began, the scope of recording and coverage of reality only increased. How is Ukrainian documentary cinema changing in these conditions? What new tasks are the authors facing? How does each of the filmmakers answer the question, “Why do I continue making films?” Are the forms and roles of documentary cinema changing, in this information field which is oversaturated by video content? And what kind of experience does Ukrainian documentary cinema give its audiences now?
