Michaëla Chaike, the CEO of Filmotor, expressed her enthusiasm for welcoming this expressive Slovak film into her company.

She stated, "The film offers us a unique perspective on the war in Ukraine. The film uniquely portrays events from the Kharkiv Metro, all because of a love story, friendship in the most challenging human conditions of war. 'Photophobia' is absolutely unique in blurring the lines between documentary and fiction. I firmly believe that thanks to the Venice award, we will be able to ensure the most productive distribution of the film at festivals and in cinemas worldwide."

The announcement emphasizes that Filmotor acquired the film to showcase it to a global audience.
