  • FOR THE VICTORY! by Valentyn Vasyanovych, producer: EAVE graduate Volodymyr Yatsenko is in development. The film tells the story of a man over 50, for whom everything is falling apart – but slowly, not all at once. He tells it from the point of view of his family having left, settling somewhere near Vienna. So he remains here alone. His father is old and has to be looked after during the war, and he has an adult son who does not want to grow up, but wants to sit and study computer games. He’s got a whole heap of problems, and at the same time, he feels this terrible helplessness. He cannot go to fight, but he wants to support his country somehow. And he talks about his friends with whom he has worked before. Vasyanovych is one of 48 Ukrainian filmmakers to have received a development grant for his project from the Ukrainian Film Academy, with support from Netflix.
