Co-directed with Marc Roussel, the documentary is filled with conversations with locals in a country scarred by war.

Slava Ukraini chronicles the remarkable counteroffensive of Ukrainian troops and documents the liberation of the city of Kherson and the Kharkiv region.

Shot as a travelogue through the country’s conflict zones, the film delves into Ukrainian politics and explores its struggle for independence and democracy during the ongoing invasion by Russia.

Klaudiusz Madeja spoke to Lévy following the premiere of the film.
