The men and women of Ukraine
voice their dreams and nightmares
Golos takes us outside the polarised rhetoric on either side of the Ukrainian conflict and gives voice to those stuck in the middle; at once a history lesson and a taking-of-the-temperature of a people thrust into an unwanted war.

Gabriel Gatehouse, BBC Newsnight

A compelling and moving documentary about Ukraine today which provides a platform for ordinary people of all ages to express their response to war. Filmed across four cities, the film takes us straight to the hearts of its citizens.
Directors: Dolya Gavanski
& Fedor Levchenko

The Day of Lviv City is the most important holiday… If your house is not in order how can the country be?

Today it is clear: there is an information war beside the real war in Eastern Ukraine.

Happiness, that is peace. When peace comes to Ukraine I will be happy – a citizen of peace.
