Alyona Shevtsova talks about the main ideas and the goals of the Grown by Freedom movie that will premiere soon
In the nearest future, the Grown by Freedom documentary about the full-scale war in Ukraine will be shown on several world streaming platforms. At the same time, the short version of the movie was already shown at the Berlin Economic Forum.
The author of the idea of Grown by Freedom, the famous Ukrainian businesswoman Alyona Shevtsova, told reporters that her movie offers a very deep and thorough analysis of the experiences of Ukrainians during the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine caused by the full-scale invasion of Russia at the end of February 2022.
The Grown by Freedom movie is based on documentary footage made at the beginning of a full-scale invasion, thus offering video evidence of bombing, destroyed Ukrainian cities, and horrifying stories of eyewitnesses.
Throughout the movie, the audience will see how Ukrainians and the business community joined forces in the face of the threat, and witness the courage and fierce determination of the Ukrainian people to defend their homeland.
“This movie will become chronological evidence that our children and grandchildren will use to truly understand what we had to experience and feel. Only such a movie allows us to preserve it and pass it on through generations. At the same time, we also wanted to convey this idea to people in many countries, the whole world, and all continents. So, it turns out that our key task is to sign a contract with Netflix to premiere our documentary on this streaming platform,” says Alyona Shevtsova.
The documentary was developed and released with the support of the IBOX BANK and the LEO International Payment System from Ukraine.
It is worth noting that IBOX BANK, its shareholders, management, and employees have done a lot to help Ukrainians, both in the first days of the war, as well as in its later stages.
The main heroes of the movie are employees of the mentioned and other organizations. They wanted to share their feelings and experiences with the audience. In addition, one of the main heroes of the movie is the mother of the famous defender of Azovstal, Dmitry Kozatsky (aka “Orest”), Irina, who had been in Russian captivity for a long time and was released as a result of an exchange of prisoners of war.
As Alena Shevtsova notices, the movie demonstrates the struggle and willingness of Ukrainians to defend the right to freedom, their ability to show care and support to each other and be empathic even in the atmosphere of war crimes and everything that happens around them.
The Grown by Freedom documentary will become another historical evidence of Russia’s crime against Ukraine.
A young and aspiring Snezhana Gusarevych from Ukraine became the director of the movie, while Oleksii Yasakov became its executive producer.
More information about the movie can be found on the official website.
