Our new documentary Back to Bucha: Finding the Spirit in Ukraine is in the final editing stage and will be ready at the end of April - and ready for screenings starting in May.
What’s it about? Executive Producer Alex Gamota at Bear Witness sums it up this way:
"Back to Bucha is a snapshot of Ukraine's resilience at the most human level: lives, livelihoods, and homes being rebuilt, religious faiths of all types being tested and strengthened, families, including with children, adjusting to the new..."normal."
I shot the film in Ukraine in January and February a couple months back. While there I was struck by the moms I encountered talking about God and how He is looking out for them. Women are the biggest difference between now and last Spring when I was there shooting Trek to Bucha. They are back. Why? Because they want to raise their kids in their own homes in their own country.
Check out the trailer and you’ll see what I mean.
Screenings are appropriate for churches, community centers, schools, universities, and any organization interested in sharing these unique stories from Ukraine with their community. Screenings can take place both in-person and virtually. Almost all in the film speak English making the film ideal for American audiences.
So, if you have a group that wants to be informed, inspired, and entertained I personally welcome the opportunity to show Back to Bucha to your community.
