- Directed by Roman Liubyi
On Monday the 28th of March, we’re hosting an online screening of the Ukrainian documentary “War Note” by Roman Liubyi. Personal videos from the phones, camcorders, cameras and GoPros of Ukrainian soldiers are woven into a surreal journey to the frontline of the war with Russia. The film shows a bizarre world whose laws are quite different from what we are used to. The behaviour is different, the relationships unfold differently and the humour takes on different notes. The heroes wake up and fall asleep, rejoice and cry, always feeling that the recording may end at any moment.
A film released in 2020 which might feel like live footage.
“War Note” received 3 awards at Docudays UA International Documentary Human Rights Film Festival and won at Kharkiv MeetDocs Eastern Ukrainian Film Festival.
