I Will Laugh Despite My Tears!

Ukrainian short films screening fundraiser

11th November


Vsesvit is excited to announce a Ukrainian short film screening, `I Will Laugh Despite My Tears!`, a fundraising event which will take place at the legendary Phoenix Cinema!

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.

The program:

All money from the ticket sales will go to Hospitallers, the organisation of volunteer paramedics. There will also be a pop-up store with fundraising publications, prints, and objects.

Tickets are 12£, you can purchase them here.

Accessibility: Accessible Toilets, Accessible Parking Spaces, Service Animals Welcome, Step Free Access, Wheelchair Accessible.

Seating will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Age limit: 16+

This screening is supported by Fastmarkets with the kind help of Veronika Prykhodko.

We thank Ukrainian online cinema Takflix for their support with this screening.

We would like to thank @ihatekrupenikov for his kind technical assistance.

Event organising team: Mariia Pastukh, Lera Ganicheva, Kat Oleshko.
