Roses. Film-Cabaret is a documentary cinéma vérité, following the Dakh Daughters--an intellectual freak cabaret band created by seven actresses under the roof of Kyiv experimental contemporary theater, Dakh. The video diary spans almost five years, following Dakh Daughters from their first show titled Roses - after their first popular song 'Rozy / Donbas', written long before Donbas region became the war-torn zone of the so called "Russian Spring." Roses. Film-Cabaret is about being an artist under extreme conditions of the pain and loss, realizing that during the war a natural self-defense would be creation--in art as well as in terms of motherhood. The film presents a special take on the Maidan revolution, as we are following the events through the eyes of female artists; through women's eyes. Life is a cabaret for the characters of the film, so Roses is a film-cabaret, where music hardly stops, pace never slows and acting becomes something genuinely sincere. We see through the Dakh Daughters' lives only to find out all that happens behind the curtain is for the sake of being put on the stage.

The Inaugural Ukrainian Film Fest brings you features, documentaries and shorts that shine a light on Ukrainian culture and accomplishment in the art of filmmaking. These films were chosen, in part, by Winter Fest 2023 co-curator Olga Bekenshtein to provide insights to Ukraine's identity and contemporary life. Tickets and student/senior/other discounts for Fest film screenings are available on the 3Below website.
