Olga – Charity Preview Screening in Support of Ukraine

Thursday 24th March 2022

UK cinemas have come together in support of Ukraine with a series of preview charity screenings of Olga, a new film about a young female Ukrainian gymnast forced to train in exile.

From each ticket sold, a donation will be made to support Ukraine, with donations going to The Disasters Emergency Committee (and onto their member charities). The previews are the result of a partnership from 606 Distribution and the BFI, with support from the UK Cinema Association.

Dir. Elie Grappe, Ukraine/Switzerland/France, 2021, 85 mins, subtitled.
Cast. Anastasiia Budiashkina, Sabrina Rubtsova, Caterina Barloggio.
BBFC Cert: 15

A talented teenage Ukrainian gymnast exiled in Switzerland dreams of Olympic gold in Elie Grappe’s multi-award-winning drama. Fifteen-year-old Olga is trying to fit in with her new team in her new home. But as she prepares for the European Championship, the Ukrainian people stage a revolution. Olga is left a powerless, distant bystander as her mother, an investigative journalist, faces danger as she challenges a brutal regime. Can Olga reconcile her personal goals with the history unfolding in her homeland?

A subtle, tensely handled tale of exile reflecting the pressures on young athletes, the clash between the personal and the political, and a young woman’s search for who she is and what she is prepared to sacrifice.

P.S. We think you'll enjoy Memory Box too. Why not make an evening of it and stay for the 8.30pm screening?
