A film about young Ukrainian women who survived the horrors of war will be shown
Behind Me: Survival Stories of Young Ukrainians will take place on MTV on February 21 and will focus on the lives of Ukrainian teenagers during the war, reports Deadline.
The film, directed by Nathaniel Lezra, will tell the stories of 18-year-old Sasha and 15-year-old Dasha, who were forced to flee to Poland and now they are trying to build a normal life there. Another important heroine – psychologist Katya Trofimenko, who is trying to help girls adjust to the new realities of life.
"As the world celebrates the anniversary of Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine, we tried to shed light on the colossal impact of this war on people, especially on the youth who were forced to flee their country. I am honored to share their stories and show through the thoughtful lens of Nathaniel Lezra their extraordinary resilience, their mental health, the support of their loved ones, and their search for hope for a better future,” said Nina Diaz, Chief Creative Officer, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios.
It is also noted that MTV is partnering with Choose Love to “empower viewers to support war-torn young people in Ukraine.” Read more about the help to Ukrainian youth on the website.
“This film aims to draw the attention of the world to a group of people who are too often lost when covering this war – young refugees,” the director said.< /p> Prepared by: Nina Petrovich
