“This is the first Oscar in Ukrainian history. I’ll probably be the first director to say it here: I wish this movie didn’t exist. I would like Russia to never attack Ukraine, never to occupy our cities. I would give this award so that Russia does not kill my compatriots, releases all Ukrainian military and civilians who are currently in prisons and are being held hostage,” – said the director.

He also added: “But I can’t change the past. But all of us can change history, make the truth prevail. And the people of Mariupol and others who gave their lives will never be forgotten. Because cinema shapes memories, and memories shape history. So thank you all, thank you Ukraine! Glory to Ukraine!“.

Previously, the film won the award of the British analogue of the “Oscar” – the BAFTA film award and the prize of audience sympathy of the Sundance festival. In addition, at the beginning of 2024, Mstislav Chernov was awarded the award of the US Directors Guild for “outstanding directorial achievements in documentary cinema”.

However, it was not without incidents. For some time, footage from the film “Navalny” was shown on the stage of the award to honor the memory of the deceased Russian opposition figure. With this video, the traditional memorial performance began, in which all cinematographers who passed away during the last year were remembered.

In 2023, the film “Navalnyi” Canadian documentarian Daniel Roer about a “good Russian” overtook the Ukrainian one “House of Rocks” about children from Lysychansk and won the “Best Documentary” award.
