TMR is proud to host a solidarity screening in collaboration with the Emergency Support Initiative by Kyiv Biennial and Home Cinema to raise funds for Ukraine. The event will take the shape of a hybrid video broadcast, both physically screened and online broadcasted via http://homecinema.video accompanied by a talk on Media Witnessing in times of crisis by Florian Göttke.
All proceeds from the screening will go in favor of the Emergency Support Initiative, launched to help the members of the artistic and cultural community in Ukraine finding themselves in need. The main goal of the fund is to offer support to people residing in the country and to provide them with immediate financial relief under the conditions of war, occupation and/or relocation.
The screening will feature a series of recent works by moving image artists based in Ukraine. All of the works have been created in the past two months; giving a raw and immediate insight into the filmmakers’ current practices. The works provide an intimate portrayal of individuals and groups caught up in bureaucracy and war. The films remind us of the importance of filmmaking in times of crisis and the necessity to make visible and keep traces as acts of resistance. They blatantly show the political dimensions of film and visual culture and the potential of artists’ moving image practices as a medium of communicating, relating, and knowing.
If you cannot attend the physical screening, but still want to support the fundraiser, you can make a direct donation via this link (we will gather payments and send them as one transfer).
