Ukrainian surgeon Serhiy is captured by the Russian military forces in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine and while in captivity, he is exposed to horrifying scenes of humiliation, violence and indifference towards human life. After his release, he returns to his comfortable middle-class apartment and tries to find a purpose in life by rebuilding his relationship with his daughter and ex-wife. He learns how to be a human being again, how to be a father and help his daughter, who needs his love and support.
In 2014, Valentyn Vasyanovych produced and photographed “The Tribe” by Myroslav Slaboshpytskyi.

In 2021, his newest feature “Reflection” was selected for Competition at 78. Venice International Film Festival.
Dear film viewer!
We have a request for you: we will show the films for free, but we ask you to support Ukraine with a financial donation. This is also the wish of the filmmakers.
We are cooperating with MTÜ Slava Ukraini, which collects medical equipment and supplies, clothes and food, which are delivered directly to Ukraine by ambulances procured by Estonian Rotary clubs. During the last week, seven carloads of humanitarian aid have already been sent. This is the fastest way for your donation to reach Ukraine.
You can donate to MTÜ Slava Ukraini by calling the numbers:
