Since Russia's attack on Ukraine on 24 February 2022. Katya, Slavik
and Roman have been fighting in the ranks of the Ukrainian Army.
They are in hell again and fighting for their country, for their freedom.
Thanks to our film, we can experience for ourselves, what this means.
Elwira Niewiera, director of the film
"The Hamlet Syndrome", winner of the Krakow Film Festival,
is an extraordinary portrait of Ukraine standing in solidarity in danger
despite the differences that divide it.
