In January 2023, we filmed the initial source material: 10 stories of our characters in Pristanište. Many volunteers actively assisted the filmmaking process and were of tremendous help. In November 2022, while screening my first movie "The Trauma of Being a Witness" I met Pristanište community members. This project stole my heart. When I saw people's genuine care and forgiveness, I realized I had to turn it into a movie.
In December 2022, friends of mine – Oksana Blagodaryova (the author of "Kamon" Telegram channel & doc) and Pasha Uluru - supported the launch of the new movie filming process with their personal donations.
In January 2023 I, Pasha – the cameraman, and Ilya – the cameraman assistant – filmed the source material: 10 stories of our heroes in Pristanište. An innumerable number of volunteers actively assisted the filmmaking process and were of immeasurable help.
I am personally grateful to every single person who supported the movie with his or her funds, time, and incredibly loving hearts!
