Israeli director's film about Ukrainians from Donbass claims for prestigious award
A short film "Anna", directed by Israeli director Dekel Berenson with the participation of Ukraine, was shortlisted for the BAFTA award, reports with the BBC with reference to the British Film Academy.
According to a posting on the Academy's website, 10 films were nominated for Best British Short Film.
Film companies from Ukraine, Israel and the United Kingdom worked on the film, although they removed the tape completely in Ukraine, and it cost 45 000 dollars.
The shooting took place in Kiev and Kryvyi Rih, where, according to the producer of the tape, Vitaly Sheremetyev, the most successful locations were, “the flavor of the cities was felt”.
The world premiere of the tape took place on May 24, 2019 at the 72nd Cannes International Film Festival, the Ukrainian one at the Molodist Kiev International Film Festival.
The motion picture tells the story of a single mother named Anna, who lives in war-torn east of Ukraine and brings up her 16-year-old daughter. The main character works at a meat processing plant and dreams of a better life.
Anna's life is hard and hopeless, and she desperately wants to change her. To do this, Anna turns to a marriage agency that introduces women to foreign men. The role of Anna in the film was played by the Ukrainian actress Svetlana Barandich.
“Anna” is the ironic look of the Israeli director Berenson on the tourist trips of foreigners for brides to Ukraine.
The BAFTA Film Award is an annual award from the British Academy of Television and Motion Picture Arts (a British Oscar equivalent). Ukrainian film for the first time falls into the short list of this film award.
The winners will be awarded on February 2 in London.
