About the event

“Mariupol Defender” is a powerful tale of courage, sacrifice and perseverance. The film follows the journey of Roman, a 20-year-old Ukrainian warrior who lost a hand and a leg while defending Mariupol in April 2022. Despite his wounds, Roman remains steadfast in his commitment to his country and his cause. After being captured by the Russians and spending three weeks in prison, Roman is eventually exchanged and travels to the United States to receive new prostheses that will help him return to the frontline.
