About event

“On February 24 at 6:31 a.m. my partner called me and said: ‘please don’t panic, but they have started bombing Kyiv’. At that moment a new reality began. A reality full of horror and pain. This documentary is about the experiences of queer people during the war,” describes Angelique Ustymenko, the director.

As part of the Artist in Residence project “Queer Station” of the Azyl Library, we would like to invite you to the screening of the documentary film “Ukrainian Queer Fighters for Freedom” directed by Angelique Ustymenko. The film was made in 2022 and tells the story of the war from the perspective of queer people.

The screening will be followed by a conversation in the form of a Q&A.

Bio: Angelique Ustymenko is a queer artist and activist. The artist is part of the group @rebel_queers2.
