The special screening and discussion to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia. The event is co-organized with the CinEast festival with the support of the European Commission Representation in Luxembourg.
When directors Sean Penn and Aaron Kaufman began filming Superpower in early 2021, a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin was a looming, if seemingly distant, threat. Penn and Kaufman traveled to Ukraine to learn more about Volodymyr Zelensky, the actor, and comedian who played an unlikely presidential candidate on television before becoming the actual President of Ukraine, and who at that point was known primarily to Americans for rebuffing attempts at coercion in the 2019 Trump-Ukraine scandal that resulted in the impeachment and subsequent acquittal of President Donald Trump.
