Brief synopsis

As we approach World Refugee Day (20 June) Stink Films director, Andzej Gavriss, Don't Panic , and UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency present a powerful short film called “Uprooted”. At a time when the global displacement crisis has reached 100 million people world wide, the film sends a message of support to all refugees around the world.
In total, over 50 refugees from Ukraine were involved in the project including all the talent featured in the film. Adding to the authenticity and their connection to the film, the actors’ wardrobe incorporated an item of clothing they wore when fleeing their country.
"Since the war broke out, I have been hearing many stories from Ukrainian refugees detailing the debilitating effects of PTSD. The subject felt so important, yet not much was being said in the public. After speaking with many Ukrainian friends and long-time collaborators, we decided to make a film together and use our art as our way of contributing. It was important that we cast real refugee actors in the film to tell their own stories. Despite all the pain, the film ends with a message of hope and unity - to stand together and give strength to one other." - Andzej
