"Almost 10 000 voters" is a documentary, presenting how does democratic process work in today's Ukraine. However the director is not focused on the works of the government or the strike on the famous Maidan, but on an average small town, where the most important decisions are made. She carefully observes locals discussing politics on the street market, kids being thought how democracy works by their teacher; and young men, dressed in uniforms, going to war, not knowing if they will return. The film is a perfect example of how small-scale story make a big impact on the audience.
Director, social activist and traveler Ulyana Osovska was born in Ukraine. She graduated in international business from Kyiv National Economic University. Ulyana Osovska was an active participant of the Ukraine's revolution of 2014 which sparked her interest in documenting the world through a camera.
