Ukrainische Filmtage


Der ukrainische Filmemacher Oleg Sentsov, der die Maidan-Proteste in Kiew unterstützte und sich gegen die Annektierung der Krim durch Russland aussprach, wurde im Mai 2014 vom russischen Inlandsgeheimdienst FSB verhaftet und ins Moskauer Lefortowo - Gefängnis gebracht. Ihm wird die Planung terroristischer Handlungen vorgeworfen, was sowohl Sentsov selbst als auch seine Anwälte bestreiten. Der Prozess ist aktuell für den 11. Juli angesetzt. Sentsov drohen 20 Jahre Haft. Zahlreiche Organisationen und bekannte Filmemacher setzen sich seit über einem Jahr für seine Freilassung ein. Die Ukrainischen Filmtage möchten das Interesse der Presse, der Öffentlichkeit und der Politik für die Ereignisse in der Ukraine und das Schicksal des ukrainischen Regisseurs wecken sowie die Zuschauer mit der aktuellen ukrainischen Filmlandschaft bekannt machen.
