More From the Filmmakers

As a Ukrainian, a woman, and a global citizen, I feel a deep responsibility to ensure that the ongoing war, which has claimed countless lives, is not forgotten by the world. I believe that together we can bring attention to this important topic and contribute to a greater understanding of the experiences faced by Ukrainian women and children refugees, telling the world about the horrible war that is still lasting and taking more and more lives. We must talk about this until the evil is stopped.
