Ukrainian intelligence services have intercepted thousands of phone calls Russian soldiers made from the battlefield in Ukraine to their families and friends in Russia, painting a stark picture of the cruelty of war in a dizzying emotional tension. Juxtaposed with images of the destruction caused by the invasion and the day-to-day life of the Ukrainian people who resist and rebuild, the voices of the Russian soldiers – ranging from being filled with heroic illusions to complete disappointment and loss of reason, from looting to committing more horrible war crimes, from propaganda to doubt and disillusionment – expose the whole scope of the dehumanizing power of war and imperialist nature of the Russian aggression.

Director, Intercepted

Oksana Karpovych is a Ukrainian-Canadian filmmaker, writer, and photographer born in Kyiv. She lives and works between Kyiv and Montreal. Her first feature documentary, Don’t Worry, the Doors Will Open, won the New Visions Award at RIDM in 2019 and received a special mention at Hot Docs 2020. In her projects, including films and oral histories, Karpovych explores ordinary people’s everyday lives, and how state politics intrude into the private sphere, influencing the communities she intimately documents. Karpovych is a Cultural Studies graduate of the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine and a Film Production graduate of Concordia University in Montreal.
