Exactly five years ago a massive tragedy happened over Eastern Ukraine. A civilian airliner, a Boeing 777-200, which was operating on a flight of Malaysia Airlines with the flight number 17 heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was most likely shot down by a surface to air rocket system controlled by separatists, supported by Russia in the Ukrainian War.
This movie is to make you think about something very important in our life. Peace.
The ongoing war in my home country Ukraine still hasn’t stopped and costed already 13.000 lives. 289 of them were the victims of the MH17 crash exactly five years ago. I need to be honest, as a Ukrainian I feel so extremely saddened and ashame that such catastrophe happened in my country. Innocent, completely neutral people having no contact to the conflict – dead, murdered.
In my movie I wanted to express all my different emotions I had during the planning and creating. Seriosly, this was personally for me one of the most emotional videos I ever produced.
We all share the suffer, together. Dutch, Malaysian and Ukrainian.
