THE UKRAINIAN INSURGENT ARMY: CHRONICLES 1942-1945
A documentary in two parts about the history of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army from 1942 to 1954 based on the testimonials of thirty-four witnesses and direct participants in the events (with over one hundred people surveyed).
The film shows the Ukrainian insurgent movement from the perspective of "ordinary people," without pathos, mystification, and propagandistic clichés. The oral history reveals an unconventional view of the nature of the UPA struggle, letting the viewer feel the atmosphere and spirit of the age, while submerging into the whirlpool of turbulent events.
