Ukrainian drama about Nazi occupation of Mariupol won award at Silk Road Film Awards Cannes
The film “Why Iʼm Alive” by Ukrainian director Villen Novak won at the Silk Road Film Awards Cannes. It was nominated for Best Feature Film Director.
The film is based on real-life events that took place in Mariupol during World War II — a love story of a 17-year-old Ukrainian and a Jew.
“Their relationship is a mix of joy and sorrow, love and hate, passion and misunderstanding… occupation, denunciations, collaborationism, looting, fascist terror, executions of Jews,” said the film description.
