with the war in ukraine has been going on for more than a month, artists and creatives. they're also affected. some are resisting on the ground. others have escaped to brought the 21 with a true life story about displacement and life in the wake of war. but 1st, how feature films bring war propaganda to a mass audience remover on the he did mean from the start a war. and ukraine has been a war of images, images of ukrainian president of low to me, or so lensky as a defiant, every man braving russian attacks or on social media, skillfully using images of courageous civilians to inspire resistance at home and
7:32 pm
around the world. was re make a little bit on russian state media. we have images of president vladimir putin raging about. suppose it ukrainian drug addicts and neo nazis alongside images of alleged ukrainian attacks on civilians. we're definitely seeing now absolute propaganda coming from russia was this new dimension of fake news that our disguised ass, you know, honest news services, you know, telling citizens about what is going on. i mean, what fake news do is they rely on some sensationalism and, and emotions. so it's looks like serious news to people who don't know better. of all these images on both sides are deliberate. how we see the war. any war is framed by our image of the enemy. and our image of the
7:33 pm
enemy is framed by what we've been trained to see through the soft propaganda of film fiction. it's a propaganda tradition that extends back through cinema history. 30 eisenstein knew what the enemy looked like in his classic silent film, battleship potemkin, he depicts troops of evil cause, acts like an impersonal killing machine. the scene justifies a later act of violence in the film. when the heroic rebels fire on the surface military i would say there's baseline fundamental strategies for depicting enemies. they're usually shot from below. they're usually seen as menacing. they're usually depicted as personifications of death or abstractions, or perhaps personified personified vermin,
7:34 pm
or other animals that are easily demonized and usually kill that image of the enemy hasn't changed much in a century of cinema work. in lone survivor, the impersonal army of killers. are taliban not cossacks? while the film makes no grand statements to justify the war and afghan, the stan, like so many war films, many made with the help of the american military and the images of a monstrous, overwhelming enemy, underscore foreign policy objectives. the it's about justifying certain kinds of foreign policy positions. it's about selling weapons and making sure that the american public understands that large expenditures are necessary in order to conduct these foreign policy operation. for decades. americas movie enemy number one was russia. the russians are
7:35 pm
the craze. killers in rambo, 3 and in top gun, where just the symbol of rushes, red star means the threat of death from above. cooper, i'm going to go ahead to head with them. russia has always been a go to enemy, you know, it was the case in the cold war to been the case for the last 20 years. they're an easy enemy to put on the screen and they serve us interests as an enemy pretty well . go free. the cold war, so american cinema, at its most jingle with dick in 1984 hit red dawn. the soviets invade america. right? the russians are shown as heartless, gothic killers. over
7:36 pm
the years in 2012, hollywood did a remake in place of the russians. the bodies this time were supposed to be chinese . but a switch in u. s. foreign policy to pro china forced a last minute change in the script there wipers, including us central command. this film was changed so that china was not the enemy anymore, but north korea was as ridiculous as that sounds that north korea would stage a land invasion the united states. this is the red dawn of 2012. and work in politics usually gets the final cut. since putting came to power, there's been a deluge of russian films on world war 2, called the great patriotic war in russia. in 2018 epic,
7:37 pm
234 brave russian soldiers battle the evil nazis trying to destroy them. today's propaganda towards ukraine draws directly on the cinematic images of the enemy. what we're seeing today, if we think maybe just specifically about your crime is a very visual, fastest mouth, see type of propaganda where there's absolutely no nuance in is sort of to pick thing the enemy and very clear visual language. so there is a direct line and the way that these nazi enemy images are being revoked in today's russia. but in the middle of an actual war framing the other side in terms of made up a movie, batteries may make it harder to find real world peace. i think after the russian invasion of ukraine, we're going to see the flood gates open. i think they are going to be an even
7:38 pm
easier enemy. and i think is unfortunate in a certain sense because that is going to play into a global relationship. that is going to make diplomacy harder when diplomacy is needed, more than ever from feature films, to real life stories, a young man seeing the syrian will find refuge in ukraine. his tale is told by a ukrainian filmmaker now faced with war, herself. the dunbar region in eastern ukraine before the russian invasion. it's the setting of the documentary, this rain will never stop a film about the war and on bass, which began in 2014 and continues to this day. a documentary that's already become a historical document in its own right. it was directed by alina gold over we
7:39 pm
spoke with her on march 7th in ukraine's besieged capital chief. i feel my last feel and the right now i think the time like another person, person who still that's movie because yes, everything change that's whoa. doesn't exist anymore. in this world, russian tanks stand outside the city. alina gall, nova, has been taking part in the volunteer service. there, she can't say precisely where the center is located. for security reasons. i'm in my car, me on the are there are, i wouldn't say this. we are trying to distribute calls in a to a call me into an 8 for this really can order for the also for the army. we are trying to organize ourselves in some way because it's duration is very tough
7:40 pm
. in 2018, she seemed at a checkpoint between ukrainian and separated controlled areas in the east of the country. even then tensions were rising along the dividing line. that's where she met under the sulaiman who worked for the red cross seeing the war and his homeland syria, he sought refuge in his mother's homeland east in ukraine and found himself in another rural sir. she told florence to little his stomach was just done with the customer was chris with cousin was submitted to deal with
7:41 pm
him, would recite this feel was created by itself in some way. so with us, sir, we were full in reality and we realized during the human, something bigger in the documentary, his story becomes a universal one. turning the film into a meditation on the nature of war itself. ukraine's military on parade a fascinating and disconcerting sight. but to day the filmmaker says this scene has taken on a new meaning before that, sir? ah, a lot of people, i'm a bro bay. they said that it's like a militarization or something. greg, that's buy bread. now we could see that actually right now, this people that protects him ourselves from these crazy army. the homelands of both andries salih,
7:42 pm
men's parents are caught up in wools. his father stays in contact with other family members now scattered around the world. his parents chose to stay in ukraine in 2014, despite the conflict. and so did he to stale to flee a dilemma in which every answer speaks of los a wanted and recently man stayed back then ask alina cordova today. and the answer is clear. i think that's a, he's following the same thing says am i am because i want to leave my i don't want to leave in on the money. i would, i would really love this country. i really love people, but we have our own home. we have our own countries. i don't want to leave. so the
7:43 pm
stress right now ukrainian refugees. it's not a choice andree. i think he decided to stay because here he knows what to do. he knows where to work. he knows he has grabs. when we spoke with the filmmaker in early march, under lisa layman was okay, he wasn't on bass, but in another city. his messages were brief. back then when she was filming, she accompanied him when he visited his uncle in an iraqi refugee camp. she wanted to show hoarse, physical, and psychological effects. and how war and peace alternate. i just want to tell that the, it's like a circle and we're like a go in there on the circle every time in our history. ah, strong though, everywhere it beginning from bench in time. so we are starting this war and we couldn't starboard, sandra, and see me and maybe that see something inside ourselves. why start
7:44 pm
wools? when we long for peace, where does the urge to fight come from? for a country or for those we love her film asks these questions once that now calls go over sleepless nights. but she says, now's not the time to go looking for answers rigorous, i agree with my friends. we decided to sell it to larry and, and they hold that so we will very soon, it's really my hope that we will go further forward and we will try to del q by our territories right now. ah, so it's our big dream. thank you so much. everything. okay, bye bye. good for now hope and reality seemed very far apart. the destruction continues. buildings plans for the future lives and long cultivated cultural relationships are also being disruptive,
7:45 pm
which is also affecting major museums in berlin. the artist museum in berlin. the alternate in our gallery signs of solidarity with ukraine are everywhere, but collaboration and dialogue with museums in russia had been put on hope since putin's attack on ukraine. deco culture has no chance and war war destroys everything. this one was, it was a full strand of apple and how it was you had to remember that even in times where there may have been my political tensions, culture and science, i've always been universally seen as opening the door to dialogue and an instrument for dialogue. in that suddenly changed to his food. peter, for indigo. yes, video shoot and wireless. it's really disturbing because it's interrupted, longstanding relationships also. and of course we're also worried about our partners. the people who work in these institutions are biting the prussian cultural heritage foundation, which administers cultural institutions in
7:46 pm
a near berlin, has built strong ties to russia, large parts of its collections, or even there, they were taken to the soviet union after world war 2. we were shifting ones here. ah, the yeah, almost 80 years after the end of the war, we're still dealing with its aftermath, phone complex. we're trying to reassemble some collections to leak on to reconstruct knowledge. and now another war started a tech and also in this war is again targeting people along with their cultural heritage. it is in this kind of destruction is happening again. these are, are fun such true. many exhibits such as the treasure of abs. valdez discovered new berlin in 1913 and dating back to the bronze age, only exist as copies in berlin. the originals are in the push museum in moscow. more than 10000 artifacts were taken to the soviet union as war spoils by the red army and are still stored there many in warehouses. but russian and german researchers developed a vibrant network of collaboration and dialogue,
7:47 pm
or the ending on this model as researchers is to learn as much as we can about these artifacts and to make that knowledge available. it isn't selfish, it is cuz he wants to bring and europe without borders was the name of a successful collaborative project between russia and germany. but the exhibition was only ever allowed to be shown inside russia. it started in 2007 with the major exhibition in moscow focusing on treasures of the merovingian dynasty. the bronze age followed in 2013, at the opening and st. petersburg, german chancellor, and get a medical met vladimir putin and delivered a provocative speech. he isn't them. i know it is our opinion that these exhibits should return to germany. good fun comes over. the collaboration went smoothly, but the return of artifacts remained a sticking point. recently, the iron age exhibition featured at the hermitage in saint petersburg and the state historical museum in moscow. due to the pandemic artifact from berlin were sent to russia, but none of the researchers could go a virtual tour and a glossy catalogue documented the exhibition. will this new war

7:49 pm
mine's other finds from troy, would have been united there. the war has also made itself felt in the berlin state library. according to the new general director, ocoee monta, the large eastern europe section no longer receives new publications from ukraine or russia. the german russian library dialogue has also been put on hold alice on hold or but everything is on hold us. but with the great hope that we can start it up again to send off the sticker, because these are important projects that unite people, ease renika minds. they foster the common understanding that wars and conflicts like the one we are currently experiencing. so always under years of progress, just you and see modem yachts look valve in time. like now, looking at ukranian and russian children's books in the library collection helps the books i can both to says are testament to the 2 countries shared longing for
