A video for ZENIT song by Ukrainian electro-folk band ONUKA won the Around International Film Festival! Filmed in 2019 by Eugene Filatov, premiered on December, the 9th, 2019.


Around International Film Festival is an annual international film festival held in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Barcelona. ARFF calls networking its value. The festival cycle lasts a whole year, during which various events are held, where directors from all over the world present their films.

I hope this video will help to open eyes to the beauty of the world around us. Regardless of the troubles we face, the demands made of us by modern living, or the fast paced run we are all thrown into. Sometimes you need to stop for a second to see the happiness of the moment. We see that what we want to see.

Nata Zhyzhchenko, Lead singer of ONUKA
