Two film programs are part of the national focus, Ukraine. With selected poetry films from this year's submissions, as well as special recommendations from the Ukrainian Film Festival Berlin, ZEBRA will present various facets of the Ukrainian film and poetry scene. Landscape, love, culture, tradition, and conflict are just a few of the themes. Films in this program are based on poems by Yurii Andrukhovych, Hrytsko Chubai, Nadiia Kyrian, Iya Kiva, Halyna Kruk, Grigory Semenchuk, Ivan Semenenko und Serhiy Zhadan.
Content note: The films in this programme may contain explicit depictions of physical and/or psychological violence as well as various kinds of assault. Please be aware that these depictions may trigger survivors and may thus prove harmful to their mental health.
This program will be accompanied by readings, film talks, a colloquium, a retrospective, and a masterclass during the festival.
