On Saturday 28 July, The Association of Ukrainians in Victoria held their first film screening at Ukrainian House in Essendon.
It was an important event as it showcased a documentary about falsely imprisoned filmmaker Oleh Sentsov.
Bryce Wilson held a Donbas photographic exhibition and young emerging film maker Stefan Burgyn spoke about his latest project and brought along an Australian flag for guests to sign. This flag will passed onto volunteer groups looking after soldiers fighting in East Ukraine.
With free entry guests were asked to make a donation to the Sentsov family.
At Essendon over $1000 was raised and at Noble park $950. These funds will be passed on to the family.
