After the invasion of Russian personnel into Ukraine, she stopped for a while, but in the end, she did finish it. Oliver Rehák, editor of Denník N will lead discussion with the Ukrainian director Alisa Kovalenko and Pavol Pekarčík, who started going to Ukraine and filming there already after 2014, about the events in Ukraine and the documenting of the conflict there.
