To be or not to be in Ukraine. A portrait of a generation for whom war has become an everyday reality.
"The Hamlet Syndrome" portrays a generation of young Ukrainians marked by times of war. The starting point here is the preparations for a theatre performance loosely based on Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'. The film is a moving portrait of a generation eager to face the trauma of war and a painful past, which now, after Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, becomes both their present and their future.

This is one of the most talked-about Polish documentaries of the year. Winner of the Golden Hobby-Horse at the Krakow Film Festival and two prestigious awards at the Locarno festival: Grand Prix Semaine de la critique and Independent Critics Award "Boccalino d'Oro" for the best documentary film.  

The film will be screened in the original Ukrainian version with Polish subtitles.

The film is distributed by the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights / WATCH DOCS.
