Killarney-based Ukrainians host film premiere

To mark the anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the premiere of the Ukrainian documentary, Life to the Limit, will be screened in the Great Southern Killarney, Hotel on Wednesday next, February 22, at 6.00pm.

Admission is free to all but donations would be welcome on the night.

The documentary is the first film that shows the struggle of the Ukrainian people from the Revolution of Dignity in 2014 to today. For this work, the authors reviewed more than 600 archive hours of the chronicle to create the most emotional story so that the whole world will understand the situation.

The authors of the film are Ukrainian veterans, director Pavlo Peleshok and producer Yurko Ivanyshyn whose previous film Winter on Fire was nominated for an Oscar in 2016.

Over the past year, many Ukrainians have died defending their land, many have survived captivity and torture and many have lost their relatives and homes.

More than eight million Ukrainians have tried to save their lives and the lives of their children by becoming refugees and some made it to Killarney and received shelter and support from the local community.

“As a new part of the local community, we want to provide more information about what is happening in Ukraine and explain why we are here,” said the local organisers.

“Together with the whole world, we want to draw attention, on the date of the anniversary, to the beginning of the full-scale aggression against Ukraine”. Everyone reads it – ask anyone. Call 087-2229761 to advertise
