Maciek Hamela’s documentary ‘In the Rearview’, with an original score by Antoni Komasa-Lazarkiewicz, is among the nine titles selected for the 31st edition of the ACID Programme, taking place within the Cannes Film Festival.
“In the Rearview is a multivoiced narrative about the experience of war as it unfolds. Its protagonists are Ukrainian civilians from different regions, united by the life-threatening situation and desperately in need of evacuation as their country reacts to invasion. Having decided abruptly to evacuate over the borders, they are forced to rely on external helpers. The director is a volunteer in the evacuation efforts and has driven aid vehicles to Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, Slavyansk, Soledar since the war erupted, often into combat zones and to offer first aid in remote villages.”
