Focus on Ukraine
Given the current situation in Ukraine, the directors are currently unable to travel, so there will be no discussion after the film. The projections of the films on Saturday and Sunday will continue as planned.
This Rain Will Never Stop takes the audience on a powerful, visually arresting journey through humanity’s endless cycle of war and peace. The film follows 20-year-old Andriy Suleyman as he tries to secure a sustainable future while navigating the human toll of armed conflict. From the Syrian civil war to strife in Ukraine, Andriy’s existence is framed by the seemingly eternal flow of life and death.
