One Day in Ukraine

Nominees and Awards


This film plays out in Ukraine on a single day: March 14, 2022, the 2,944th day of the Russian-Ukrainian War. Intense warfare has created a post-apocalyptic dimension revealing new qualities and roles. The capital city’s previously calm suburbs have been transformed into battle zones of destruction and looting by Russian occupiers. People no longer live according to “workdays” or “weekends,” counting instead the number of days since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine…

The film presents this day in the lives of a pop music star, video engineer, historian, art restorer, polar researcher, and pensioner, all of whom were forced to radically change their lives.
