Best Documentary

The Donbass children by Lubomir Dankov

This is a movie about the Donbas war, first-person stories. You will hear the stories of so-called “ordinary people”. These people suffered from irrational from a military point of view strikes on civilian targets. They are victims of someone’s desire to wage war on their territory at all costs.

There are no author’s comments in this movie and no censoring of the thoughts of the local people. This film was made especially for spectators in Europe, who do not know what is happening in Eastern Ukraine.

The purpose of the film is to arouse interest in the ongoing six-year armed conflict and to make people to start to think about the responsibility of each of us for peace in Europe.
