Dreaming in the Shadows

About the Film: Dreaming in the Shadows is a 15-minute documentary film made by the independent Ukrainian director Marina Chankova. The film features three older people in Ukraine who have been displaced by or are still living in areas directly impacted by the war. Older people make up one-fourth of Ukraine’s population, and more older people are impacted by the war in Ukraine than in any other conflict in the world. Millions of these older people also have disabilities, and 80% of them live below the poverty line, making it very difficult for them to rebuild their lives since Russia’s invasion. The film shows how these people all try to hold onto their dignity and independence in the midst of brutal war, and highlights the dreams and hopes they have for the future.
