The opening film: Away (Távol)
(Ruslan Fedotow, Hungary, Belgium, Portugal, 28 minutes)
Andrii and Alisa, Ukrainian teenagers from Kharkiv, have just arrived in Budapest. They hold after-school drawing classes for Ukrainian refugee children, and await news from their families back home. News reports and phone calls with family bring the harsh everyday reality of the war into their lives, while the teens’ street art protesting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine provokes debate with passersby.
