The documentary film of the Crimea.Reality project (Ukrainian service of Radio Liberty) “Silent Deportation” received a gold award in the USA at the New York Festivals 2024 television film award (New York Festivals TV & Film Awards). The tape was awarded in the “Human Rights” category.

The winners of the 2024 NYF TV and Film Awards were announced in New York on the evening of April 16 during the Storytellers Virtual Gala. This was reported by the organizers of the event.

Krym.Realii documentary project (Radio Liberty) “Silent Deportation” – a film about how the Crimean Tatars are being pushed out of Crimea, how Russia is again leaving the Crimean Tatars Tatars without a home.

It describes why the Crimean Tatars are forced to leave their homeland en masse, why the indigenous people of the Crimean Peninsula are not left with a choice, almost like in 1944, when the Soviet authorities forcibly deported the Crimean Tatars in freight cars.

What is it like to run away with a summons in hand, start life from scratch with four children, fight for the Ukrainian Crimea, fight, survive in “Azovstal” and in Olenivka? – the authors of the film Anzhelika Rudenko and Dmytro Zhulai sought answers to these questions.

The heroes told their life stories, how they left the Crimea annexed by Russia, what they experienced, why they had no choice to stay, where and how they live now, and whether they will be able to return to Crimea.

The film uses unique footage from the private archives of the film's characters, some of which have been published for the first time. Filming took place in Poland, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, Ukraine and occupied Crimea.

This story needs to be told. And who, if not Krym.Realii, will tell about the deportation of the Crimean Tatars in 2023, – says the author of the film Anzhelika Rudenko.

The authors of the film: Anzhelika Rudenko – journalist-editor, Dmytro Zhulai – director-screenwriter, Nikita Isaiko is a cameraman, Elvina Seitbullaeva is a producer.

The TV Award & Film Awards was founded in 1957. This year, it received hundreds of entries in 14 categories from 5 continents. Among the nominees shortlisted for the award in the category of documentary and non-fiction films are the film crews of Al Jazeera, Yeti Television, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports Network, Voice of America, NHK, GMA Network, Wild Pacific Media and others.
