A feature documentary about the civil war in Eastern Ukraine.
2000 Miles East is a documentary film about the people of Donetsk, who had to face and live in the conditions of a civil war since 2014. The project aims to portray the struggle for survival and the conditions in which the people from the area live up until today. The documentary's purpose is to raise the awareness of the existing conflict in Eastern Ukraine to the Western audience, which we believe is not represented by media most explicitly. Throughout the film, 10 people from Ukraine will share their views on the conflict. For some, Donetsk is their true homeland and the Ukrainian government is an aggressor trying to destroy them. For others, the war is caused by the attempt of the Russian Federation to occupy territories of sovereign Ukraine.
