How can artists and crafters save the unique local tradition of blown glass? How to hold an international symposium during the war in Ukraine, online and without light? Mykhaylo Bokotey, artist and curator from Lviv, talks about his profession as a glass blower and his experiences in the war.
Art in the Land of War is a Ukrainian documentary series, co-produced by DocNote Films Production studio and BABYLON'13 film collective. It consists of 25 short stories about Ukrainian artists – painters, musicians, sculptors, and writers, who did not leave Ukraine during the war. This is episode number 13.
DocNoteFilms has started its documentary work as a part of BABYLON’13 association of independent filmmakers. Their goal is to spread accurate information and understanding of Ukrainian affairs throughout the world, and to raise the spirits and tell the stories that are not yet told within Ukraine. Art in the Land of War is published on BABYLON’13 and the Ukrainian national broadcaster UA Suspilne.
