In Ukraine ,there s actually a new atmosfere of liberty and selfexpression.
With the fall of the last authocratic ukrainian government,
the people have been liberated to express their spontaneous feelings ,opinions ,demands and desires.
Average people have started to revolte against main stream
dictates of social conformity by creating their own artistic

Our Goal / About the project
The project will put together all kinds of artistic expression like short Drama episodes , storytelling ,environmental,spontaneous or classical art as painted portraits ,all to be documented as arts originals in the film itself,conceived by trinational young People
working together in a Film-Workshop,held in Poland 2015.
At the same time,we want to explore how Poland and Germany, both EU countries, are dealing with the After Revolution
Ukraine : How do they perceive and reflect this Eu-Membership aspiring country,
somehow trapped between eastern and western frontlines?
To portray all this,we will narrate some life stories based
on our experiences having achieved our trinational Poland Workshop.
Some selected stories , turned into film episodeswill be set in unique places,
such as an old hotel close to the Black Sea and the port in Odessa,
in Kiew-Capital , hosted by a local Theater school in Kyiv ,
and in other significant places, in cooperation with further people open to such topic
of the project-relating countries .
The main goal of our documentary is to be free from western or eastern bias and propaganda.
The Movie itself, after being completed, will have its first premiere within a cultural program format, presumingly
at the „INDEPENDENT FILM DAYS „, Karlsruhe, in April2016.
Finally, we`re aiming to appear with our Film in some designed Documentary Festival in-and outside Europe.
