Several months before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, five theatermakers assembled to create their own experimental Hamlet and document the process. Featuring breathtaking personal stories from artists—including three that fought on the frontlines—this award-winning documentary gives voice to the people striving to create art in war-torn regions while confronting decades of trauma.

This screening is part of this year’s special spotlight on Ukrainian-Polish co-productions.

Join us for a Q&A with directors Elwira Niewiera and Piotr Rosolowski after the screening
