We Will Not Fade Away

By Alisa Kovalenko

"We Will Not Fade Away" follows the adolescence of Andriy, Ruslan, Ilya, Lisa and Lera in the Donbass region of Ukraine in 2019, where bombings can be heard in the distance. Somewhere between existential questions, the desire to escape from reality and the yearning for the future, they seem to expect something to happen in their lives.  One day, they are offered a unique opportunity to climb the Himalayas... In this bitter-sweet documentary, Alisa Kovalenko depicts a young generation full of dreams and questions that are constantly threatened by the ever-closer presence of a war that is set to escalate.
