Photophobia: the film of the official selection revealed

The film in the official selection of the Schools programme has finally been announced! It’s Photophobia, directed by Pavol Pekarčik and Ivan Ostrochovský.


Ukraine, February 2022, Niki, aged 12, and his family are forced to flee their home and take shelter in Kharkiv metro station to protect themselves from the war. Niki is forced to make the metro station his playground, as the outside world and daylight are synonymous with danger. As he wanders aimlessly among the abandoned carriages and occupied platforms, Niki meets 11-year-old Vika, and a new world opens up to him. Photophobia shows the daily lives of many people confined to metro stations from a child’s point of view and under the glare of neon lights.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director Pavol Pekarčik and the session is moderated by Muriel Etienne, Amnesty training manager.

We look forward to seeing you at the screenings!
