A Film Produced in Cooperation with the Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation to be Screened at the Odesa Film Festival
The audience of the 14th Odesa International Film Festival (OIFF), to be launched in two weeks, will be able to see the documentary film Dram by director and producer Yulian Ulybin about the shelter of the Drama Theatre in Mariupol.
The film was produced in cooperation with the Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation. One of the heroines of the film, Liza, shared her story with the Museum, which handed it over to the film crew. The film will be available for watching at the OIFF as part of the special screenings section called “Yes, we will win!”.
“DRAM is a very painful page of the war. Russia dropped a bomb on the Mariupol Drama Theatre and many people died there. The whole world knows about this terrible tragedy, but we know a little more, and you cannot even imagine what we are going to tell you...”, this is how the film is described on Yulian Ulybin’s Facebook page.
The Odesa International Film Festival is the main national cinema event of Ukraine and one of the largest events for cinema audiences in Eastern Europe. The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation is a partner of the festival’s documentary section Film Industry Office.
The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation collects and keeps the stories of Ukrainian civilians about their experiences during the war. More than 80,000 stories, told first-hand, have been collected for now. This is the world’s largest archive of stories from witnesses of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
Documentary films are another way to capture the events and tell the world about what Ukrainians live through. This is a joint mission, in the framework of which the Museum actively supports documentary cinema in Ukraine and the world, conducts and supports some thematic events, and shares the stories collected in its archive as a basis for film plots.
Every war story matters. To keep the memory for a better future, share your story on the portal of the Museum of Civilian Voices
