“Ukrainian Agony – The concealed war” (ENGLISH)
Since mid-July 2014, our war correspondent team is still on site in the southeast of Ukraine – in the Donbass. We shot countless videos and scored over a thousand photos. The team of “Keep a close eye on by Mark Bartalmai” was the ONLY western and German team of journalists with the highest level of accreditation and therefore had access to many critical points in this civil war. Our materials are now being used in a documentary.
In progress is a documentary film from over 3 terabytes video that were filmed in several months on site. The film with the working title “Ukrainian Agony” will have full evening length and produced in three different languages – German, English and Russian.
It shows the different areas of the war in recounting episodes and individual stories – of civilians, soldiers and journalists. The focus is on the personal perspectives of each of the actors, supported by the recorded material, during and after the bombing of cities, battles and on people’s lives under war conditions in the middle of Europe.
The documentary is not an action movie. Rather, it lives from spoken word, by the voices of the people of the interviews and their impressions. Accompanied with sequences of events it draws a picture of the personal feelings of the participants – whether civilians, soldiers and journalists.
“Ukrainian Agony” is a silent film …
… about the immense volume and violence of war. The propaganda has reached a new level of “quality”. Disinformation, concealment, half-truths up to outright lies are the “weapons” of certain Western media in this war – in an unprecedented degree.
We need your support…
The good news are, the production progress of the movie is almost completed. Our Trailer shows some impressions of it. The costs (for Mark Bartalmai and Nuoviso Filmproduktion) to be on site in ukraine and the production of the movie amount to a considerable sum of more than 20.000 EUR, the projected translation and synchronisation in english and russian will cost another 10.000 EUR.
To continue our work we need to refinance at least a part of the costs. Therefor we will release a DVD with the movie, rather we would like publish the movie for free and everyone. For this option it is necessary to refinance the half of the production costs with your support. Your donations help us to continue with the translation of the movie in english and russian language, which aren’t done yet.
