Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett became a producer of a documentary about Kharkiv amid the war
Cate Blanchett — an actress and Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR — produced the documentary “Ukraine: Life Under Attack: Dispatches” about the events in Kharkiv during the full-scale war unleashed by Russia.
Cate Blanchett narrates the up-close story of the Battle for Kharkiv, told through the eyes of the civilians and emergency workers who bore the brunt of the Russian onslaught.
The documentary lasts almost an hour. The main characters are firefighter Roman and his team that saved the city from fires caused by explosions; paramedics Tetiana and Iryna, who not only saved the wounded but also daily helped people who stayed in the underground for several months, hiding from strikes.
The documentary features children who have to live in underground shelters not to be affected by Russian missiles. ‘Ukraine: Life Under Attack: Dispatches’ is available on the Channel 4 Plus website.
