We just arrived from rainy Vienna to sunny Barcelona. We are less then halfway through this European tour, having already held screenings in Warsaw, Przemysl, Krakow and Vienna and still have screenings to attend in Barcelona, Rome, Berlin, Wroclaw, Gdansk and Munich.

First, I guess I should mention who “we” are. This European tour was organized thanks to the enthusiasm “without borders” of Khrystyna Gryschchuk – a Ukrainian PhD student who studies in Warsaw and is currently completing an internship in Barcelona. … Read more

Strange things happen sometimes. When we first completed this film, we applied to several US-based film festivals without much success so we decided ours was just not a “festival film.” We moved on and focused on independent and community-based screenings that proved to be very popular.

This year has been good. Since we started with a series of public showings, we were able to premiere the film in the US  with screenings in DC, Baltimore and Bethesda, we then took the film to NYC, Toronto, Calgary, Cambridge, Chicago and a five-city tour in Ukraine. So we decided to close 2011 with one final showing in Bethesda’s Landmark Cinema where there was the largest crowd the last time around and even a sizable group of people who could not get into the sold-out showing. … Read more
