When the Russo-Ukrainian War broke out in 2014, three close friends and local artists living near the Ukraine border instantly pivoted from civilians to resistance fighters and documentarians. The astonishing frontline footage they captured now shows the bravery and resilience of the everyday citizens caught in the crossfires. While Porcelain War doesn’t shy away from the heartbreak and terror of war, it’s the love, friendship, and natural beauty of their homeland that captures the indomitable spirit of the Ukrainian people. Unsurprisingly, this astonishing wartime documentary won the 2024 Sundance Festival Documentary Grand Jury Prize. The film’s artistic exploration, colorful animations, and one very cute dog sets it apart from other Russo-Ukrainian War documentaries like 20 Days in Mariupol (SIFF 2023). As filmmakers/artists/soldiers, Slava, Anya, and Andrey illustrate the fragility of their inexplicable situation, and it’s the use of art as resistance that gives them hope for the future.
