“We must tell the whole world about Mariupol, Borodyanka, Bucha and the terrible crimes that the Russian military committed there, this should not disappear from the information space. And first of all, our society must understand that the war continues, that we need to unite and do everything possible for our victory and support for each other!”, – according to the message of the organizers.

The event takes place with the participation of the Center for Comprehensive Support for IDPs “Yamariupol” and aims to raise funds for the Mariupol residents who managed to survive and evacuate to Kyiv.

Mariupoli is a powerful graphic tribute to the city in difficult conditions, a film dedicated to its poets and shoemakers.
World premiere The tape was held on February 14, 2016 at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The plot of the film shows the cordoned off, but not yet occupied Mariupol, it is located a stone's throw from the war zone in eastern Ukraine. The sounds of shots are heard within the city. We have the opportunity to see the daily life of the inhabitants of the surrounded city: a man repairs a fishing net and goes out to sea, two trams collide with each other – no one was hurt, the wires are repaired on the same day. A small concert is organized for the workers at the factory – the violinist's sincere play touches them to tears. Russian bombs fall into the sea, but people are already used to it.

Showing in the cinema “Zhovten” will take place on June 19 at 16:30. Tickets to the screening are free, but they must be booked on the cinema's website. You can book tickets HERE.
