The Superpower trailer, the documentary by Sean Penn about the war in Ukraine, is now available on YouTube. The film is set to premiere on September 18th.

American actor and director Sean Penn, along with US television personality Aaron Kaufman and their team, visited Ukraine seven times to create a film about the war. Initially, the film's concept was to portray President Zelensky's journey from comedian to the country's leader.

Penn was in Ukraine at the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.

The P+ Original documentary Superpower tells the story of how Sean Penn heads to Ukraine to learn more about comedic-actor turned president, Volodymyr Zelensky. It was to be an amusing film – it has turned into a document of history. When Penn was brought into an undisclosed bunker in the Presidential Palace, the Russian invasion had begun. Penn talked to President Zelensky as explosions rocked the city. He became an inadvertent front-row witness to this historic ‘David and Goliath’ struggle. Through moments of levity, inspiration and on the ground storytelling, it becomes clear that Ukraine’s Superpower lies in the strength of its leader, its people, and ultimately, its heart.
