eˉlektron started its Ukraine Solidarity Screenings program in the very beginning of March. Dozens of people have joined us, donated and paid tribute to Ukrainian artists.
Many of the films we were screening weren’t the easy ones. They would bring us even closer to the war that is already an ever present weight in the lives of many. But at times like these we believe that not averting our gaze from reality is crucial. To keep looking, with empathy and care, is to recognize Ukraine’s subjectivity. And the attempt to get to know the life of the other is the least we could do.
On 16 June at 19:00 we invite you to share this time with us shoulder-to-shoulder in our studio at Kopli, 27 in Tallinn. Let’s come together for a collection of short films reflecting the fragility of our everyday lives, of cultures, cities, and worlds we build for ourselves.
We’ll get a glimpse into the life of Crimean Tatars and into the transformation of Mariupol during the past decades. We’ll witness a museum in Eastern Ukraine narrating itself, and a young couple fleeing the war and creating stories for strangers.
