One Day in Ukraine


For many global citizens, the Russo-Ukrainian War is perceived as a recent catastrophe, yet for those living the horror, it’s nothing new. The opening title card of Volodymyr Tykhyy’s One Day in Ukraine reads, ‘14 March, or the 2,944th day of the war’.

Since 2017, Ukrainian citizens have formally recognised the 14th as Ukrainian Volunteer Day. It marks the day in 2014, when 500 volunteer fighters of the Revolution of Dignity (Maidan) arrived at the Novi Petrivtsi training ground to form the first volunteer battalion to defend the East of Ukraine from Russian invasion.

Volodymyr Tykhyy is a member of the filmmaking collective, Babylon’13 whose works ‘desire to change our society through cinema’, and this latest film pays tribute to the volunteers of Ukraine. Tykhyy’s unvarnished vision of contemporary life is seen through the daily routines of three separate groups of citizens; a young woman who strives to make a difference by feeding her fellow citizens, members of the Territorial Defence Army and families who’ve taken up residence in the Metro stations to shelter from the bombs. Going beyond the nightly news snippets, One Day In Ukraine is an urgent call for audiences to bear witness to the actual history of this conflict unfolding before the world’s eyes. [15]
