I Died in Irpin

On February 24th in the morning my boyfriend and I decided to go from Kyiv to Irpin to see his parents. It is hard for me to recall the chronology of those days, my mind blocks and minimizes all the memories, erases them, but the only thing I know for sure is that every day everything rapidly became worse.

As Mstyslav Chernov (20 Days in Mariupol, 2023) said: “I wish I’ve never made this film”.

It was incredibly hard in all senses. But reliving the trauma of occupation and abusive relationships made me stronger. With this film I carry a clear message: The culprit must be punished. It’s always the rapist’s fault. Stop the Russian war against Ukraine.
