Executive director of Ukraine’s Center for Civil Liberties, 2022 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, she will also participate in the Q&A after the film. We are thrilled to have her.
The United Nations Development Programme posted this about her earlier this spring:
“Appalled by the brutal dispersal by riot police at a peaceful student camp in Kyiv in late 2013, Romantsova realized she wanted more than just to attend protest rallies. As a volunteer, she joined the Center for Civil Liberties, where she first learned about human rights. Later, she became its executive director - and a world-renowned human rights advocate.

Here’s the tentative schedule for the afternoon program:
Ukrainian cuisine will be available for purchase. This screening will also feature newly installed Ukrainian captions.
