The benefit campaign of Dutch cinemas and art houses for Ukraine has raised about 15,360 euros. Distributor ABC Film Distribution says that this amount may be even higher because cinemas have also transferred individual donations from visitors to Giro555.

Since March 31, various cinemas and art houses have shown the film The Guide one or more times for the benefit. The film, by Ukrainian director Oles Sanin, was released in 2014. The film has been awarded several prizes, but has never been shown in a Dutch cinema before. According to ABC Film Distribution, a total of approximately 1,500 people attended The Guide during the promotional period. In the end, 45 cinemas took part in the promotion.

The Guide is set in the 1930s, when millions of Ukrainians were starving due to laws imposed by the Soviet regime. When 10-year-old Peter’s father is murdered in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine, the boy flees with a blind kobzar, an itinerant musician named Ivan Kocherha. The film received two awards at the Odessa International Film Festival, in the category of Best Actor and Best Cinematography. In addition, the film was Ukraine’s Oscar submission, for the Best International Film category.

The Russian army invaded Ukraine on February 24. Since then, millions of people have fled the country, thousands have been killed or injured and countless buildings destroyed. More than 160 million euros has so far been donated on Giro555 for aid to Ukraine. The giro number was opened at the end of February on behalf of eleven collaborating aid organizations to raise money for those affected by the war there.
