LIKE DEW IN THE SUN

108 min, 2016, Switzerland, recorded in Ukraine

Directed by Peter Entell

A century ago, the grandparents of the film director had to flee Ukraine, a land torn apart by war and massacres. Now, Peter Entell faces the same destructive nationalism. The memory of the atrocities suffered by the Jews, the Tatar Muslims of Crimea, and the Orthodox population, is transmitted from generation to generation, and with it the poison of hatred. Crossing checkpoints, Peter Entell records daily life of the loyalist Ukrainians and the pro-Russian separatists.

KUI KASTEPISAR PÄIKESES

Autor Peter Entell

Ameerika filmilooja Peter Entelli esivanemad on pärit Ukrainast, sealsest sajanditagusest Venemaa ääremaast. Nüüd, mil riik on kaheks kistud, elavad Peteri sugulased kahel pool rindejoont. Hoolimata pidevast raketitulest ja iga päev langevatest kaasmaalastest, ei ole filmilooja lähedased rahulootust kaotanud.
