B’shire International Film Festival hosts “Stand With Ukraine” Fundraising Screening on Sat, May 21, 11am at the Triplex, Great Barrington.

Berkshire International Film Festival is proud to announce the screening of Roxy Toporowych’s 2018 Ukrainian award-winning film JULIA BLUE Roxy Toporowych will be in attendance for a Q&A and discuss how the cast and her family and friends are defending themselves during this horrible time. 
100% of proceeds from the event will go to Ukraine relief organizations.

JULIA BLUE was inspired to study photography by the protest scenes she witnessed in Kyiv during the 2014 revolution, JULIA has now set her sights on a future outside her beloved Ukraine. A year after the revolution began and as she awaits news from a prestigious photography school in Germany, Julia volunteers at the military hospital for injured soldiers coming directly from the front. Julia brings a carefree happiness to their ward, until the day she meets ENGLISH who has arrived with easily mended surface wounds and deeply set emotional scarring. A gentle relationship emerges that draws the two of them closer together, but each has withheld something vital from the other. When Julia decides to bring English home for a family wedding, the cost of their secrets threatens more than their relationship. A beautiful allegory for the freedoms of our modern world that seem all too fleeting, Julia Blue reminds us not just of the costs of love and war, but of the sometimes painful choices freedom demands.
