‘Branded’ ЗАТАВРОВАНА is an artist’s defiance, in the face of atrocity, to uphold Art and Freedom. Horrifying in its depiction of the persecution of artists in repressive regimes, the struggle of being confined as a prisoner of war is contrasted with the beauty of art and with a joyousness at its heart. Pauline Amos performs, with the voice of Kateryna Polishchuk, a Ukrainian soldier who was captured and held by the Russian army in Mariupol.

Artistic expression is not a luxury, it is a necessity. To repel the invader, the bond between artists and writers and freedom fighters must always be strong, with esprit de corps.

The film has a powerful message that resonates with Ukraine and around the world:
We fight For Freedom and Art is our Voice.
