About The Film
American boy Peter and blind musician Ivan are thrown together by fate amidst the 1930's Russian subjugation of Ukraine. The "Terror Famine" of the 30's is incredibly current given the attempts of Russia to once again crush the independence and freedom of their Ukranian neighbor.
  • Winner of Best Actor and Cinematography - Odessa International Film Festival 2015
  • Nominated for the grand prize at the Odessa and the Warsaw International Film Festival!

Stand with Ukraine through Film exists to raise funds to assist Ukrainians in and near Ukraine who are suffering as a result of the Russian invasion of their homeland. 
To simplify the flow of funds from ticket buyers and others, the project team created the Ukraine Relief Fund under the fiscal sponsorship of Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, Inc. (HCROA).  HCROA was established in 1994 and has been an integral part of the US government’s Combined Federal Campaign, the leading workplace fundraising program in the country.  HCROA handles millions of dollars annually, donated by individuals and transferred to benefiting charities. It undergoes annual financial audits.
HCROA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Donations – whether from ticket sales or private gifts – will go to international humanitarian organizations.  Among those expected to receive the bulk of the donations will be World Central Kitchen and the International Organization on Migration. A number of smaller tax-exempt groups will also receive support, reflecting the recommendations of Ukrainians.


Checks can be payable to Ukraine Relief Fund, Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, PO BOX 2052, Salem, MA 01970
