20 Days in Mariupol (20 днів у Маріуполі)
An AP team of Ukrainian journalists trapped in the besieged city of Mariupol struggle to continue their work documenting the atrocities of the Russian invasion. As the only international reporters who have remained in the city, they capture what later become defining images of the war: dying children, mass graves, the bombing of a maternity hospital, and more.

Ashes Settling in Layers on the Surface (Прах, що осідає шаром на поверхні)
Based on diaries and photographs of the director’s grandfather and mother, the film reconstructs the life of one family within the never-ending cycle of destruction and restoration in her hometown — Mariupol. Today, the director is left with nothing except her memories. And she is not the only one: while we are watching the film, somewhere there is a war.
