Kriegsbilder: SCHOOL NUMBER 3

Yelizaveta Smit, Georg Genoux, UK, DE, 2017
115 min., OmeU
Thirteen adolescents from a rebuilt school in South Ukrainian Donbass relate their hopes and fears. In rigorously composed shots, the documentary film shows the protagonists in their everyday environment, while they tell of experiences that move them, of nascent new loves and personal loss alike. The war is often only immediately perceptible on the periphery, yet it makes its presence felt as an unavoidable frame of reference.

Following the screening we are glad to host a Q&A with the director and many documentary characters of the movie:
Viktoriia Horodynska (documentary character)
Alina Kobernik (documentary character)
Ruslan Ivanov (documentary character)
Babakov Oleksandr (documentary character)
Liza Smith  (director)

Screening in cooperation with This Human World Filmfestival and Kriegsbilder
