Korniy Hrytsiuk is a film director and screenwriter from Kyiv, Ukraine, whose short films have been featured in several international film festivals. In 2016-2017, Korniy Gricyuk completed his first independent feature film "2020#desertedcountry". In 2018, "2020#desertedcountry" was presented at the Molodist IFF in Kyiv, as part of the
International Program «Forma», and at the Cottbus IFFF in Germany.

"Train: Kyiv-War" is a dramatic story focused on passengers taking the Kyiv-Kostiantynivka train. Their unique fates, agonies, memories, secrets, and hopes to tell the story of today's Ukraine. Twelve and a half hours from peaceful Kyiv, Kostiantynivka is a small industrial city in the eastern
Ukraine that lies on the front line of the war against Russian aggression. People of different social status, political views and beliefs sit side by side in the train. They talk, debate, even quarrel with each other but they always speak to each other as they travel in a common direction.

Dr Olenka Pevny, Director CUS, will welcome and introduce the speaker and Andrii Smytsniuk, LTO in Ukrainian, will lead the interview.

The event will be held in Ukrainian with a simultaneous English translation and will be followed by a Q&A session. The webinar will be recorded.
