Photophobia (2023)

Sobre o filme

In Kharkiv, Ukraine, 12-year-old Niki lives with his family in a subway station, to escape from the war on the surface. To leave that place and walk under the sunlight is a mortal danger - this is why Niki is not allowed to leave the underground. A new world opens up to him when he meets Vika, an 11-year-old girl who also sought protection in the station. As their bond strengthens, the children find the courage once again to feel the sun.

Winner of the Label Europa Cinemas award, in the Giornate degli Autori, at Venice International Film Festival.
