The Ukrainian film “Blindsight” by Ruslan Batytskyi won an award at the Berlinale co-production market
The film of 2Brave Productions was awarded the Eurimages Special Co-Production Development Award in the amount of 20,000 euros.
The European support fund for film production Eurimages allocated an additional prize specifically for the “Blindsight” film, calling the project particularly promising.
On a personal level, this film explores my relationship with my father through the lens of a new reality in Ukraine, especially the fact that we are 400 km apart because of the war. I have a strong emotional connection with athletes with disabilities (such as goalball players) and want to tell the story of their lives. In speaking about blindness, the film addresses questions of human connection and envisions a future for Ukrainians. I want to tell a story about a war that ended and about lives brought together.Ruslan Batytskyi
