I Will Laugh Despite My Tears!
Ukrainian short films screening fundraiser
A selection of short films curated by Kat Oleshko offers a glimpse into life in Ukraine before the full-scale Russian invasion. They portray hobbies, nature, folklore, and urban landscapes, exploring Ukraine's complex cultural tapestry. Through the lens of these films, we also reveal a life that exists no more. Some cities are already destroyed, and some are under occupation, but our culture and spirit remain unbreakable. We will continue to laugh despite our tears.
