Julia, a photojournalism student living in war-torn Ukraine, finds her path towards independence and a brighter future
Julia, a photojournalism student living in war-torn Ukraine, finds her path towards independence and a brighter future challenged after meeting and falling for English, a young soldier fresh from the war zone.
Capturing a fleeting love story in a very specific time and place one year after the 2014 revolution in Kyiv, JULIA BLUE is a different kind of war narrative. Performance-driven, artistic and subtle, it is told through the eyes of a young woman who must ultimately choose the best path for her future.
“The sophistication of her craft in every way is remarkable for her first film. Her film humanizes a world-historical event by dwelling not on the movers and shakers of history, but rather on how world events invade and shape the life of one remarkable young woman while bringing awareness to the war in Ukraine. We hope and expect we will see many more accomplished films from Best Director, Roxy Toporowych.”
