On the Day of Dignity and Freedom, the audience in Berlin will have a chance to watch a new documentary by Roman Bondarchuk. Last year, Bondarchuk was nominated to Oscar from Ukraine with his film Ukrainian Sheriffs. And this year, the film Dixie Land became the best Ukrainian film at the Odessa International Film Festival 2017 and received a Golden Duke. These days, the director is finishing his work on his feature debut Volcano.
Dixie Land is a story of children’s jazz band from Kherson, a film about the first complex questions of youth. About the way a dream can capture you, make you big and motivate you to change. The film is a bright journey from childhood into the adult world.
