Event Details

On October 26th, 2016, Stefan left Australia for Ukraine to shoot War Mothers. On August 10th, 2017, you are invited to see the stories he brought home.

War Mothers is the story of three women: Galina, Svetlana and Yulia. The live in the Ukrainian town of Zaporizhia. It is in Ukraine's east, and is along the front of the ongoing war. All three have felt this war in their very homes. It has come to them as Ukrainians in a country in turmoil. It has come to them as women seeing the devastation unfolding around them. And it has come to them as mothers, with tragedy touching them personally. They are mothers of this war. They are War Mothers.
 
Alongside the screening of War Mothers will be the world premiere of Life and Death in Vientiane, a documentary short by Rob Innes. It illustrates the trials faced by a small group of volunteers of the emergency rescue service in Laos.
 
The screening will be accompanied by an introduction, and a Q&A, with War Mother's director Stefan Bugryn, who travelled through the warzones and frontlines of Ukraine to create the project.
 
The event is in official partnership with Time Out Australia.
 

Please note: The event will be collecting donations, all of which will go to the volunteers, and helping raise awareness of the conflict in Ukraine.

Stefan Bugryn

Production for War Mothers began in 2016, where Stefan travelled to some of the most dangerous spots on earth, the warzone and frontlines of the donbass region in Eastern Ukraine, to follow the stories of the three women.

Throughout this time, Stefan was taken in by Ukraine’s biggest volunteer centre, Prival, where he met with many of the volunteer leaders around the country. Many of these volunteers are mothers themselves, desperate to provide much needed goods to their sons on the frontlines.

Stefan has been an active member of the local Ukrainian community in Australia since he was a child. He was inspired to create the project after reading an online story about a mother who joined the army after her son died on the frontline.
