Film Screening

This collection of short films from Mexico, Malta, United Kingdom and Ukraine is dedicated to those who show bravery in the face of adversity. These eye-opening films are sure to leave you feeling inspired.

This screening will take you on a journey to 1953 East-Berlin, a desolate desert in Central America, and a totalitarian society in which all borders are militarized.

The final film of this screening is the Midwest premiere of a documentary about Ukrainian heroes who have continued to make music to lift people’s spirits during the war with Russia.
