The Trial: The State of Russia vs. Oleg Sentsov – Friday, 15 June @UkrClub @ 7:00-8:15 pm FREE

During the screening “The Trial: The State of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov”, we’ll be raising funds in support of Oleg Sentsov’s family.

Oleg Sentsov announced an indefinite hunger strike on 14th May demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners, while not asking for his own release.

Every day brings Oleg closer to dying as his health has already deteriorated because of his prolonged imprisonment in a Russian Arctic prison camp.

In his documentary, Askold Kurov investigates the truth behind this political show trial. Were the witnesses for the prosecution placed under duress? What effect did detention and the trial itself have on the accused and his family? The film also documents the solidarity shown to Sentsov by filmmaking colleagues such as Agnieszka Holland, Ken Loach and Pedro Almodóvar, and by the European Film Academy, which is beginning its 30th anniversary with this screening in order to campaign once more for Oleg Sentsov’s release.

Please help us spread the word about this event to raise the awareness about Oleg Sentsov’s indefinite hunger strike.

Thank you!
