GFF19 Julia Blue
Sun 24 February 2019
Director Roxy Toporowych’s second feature film is charming, subtle and ultimately bittersweet. Julia (Polina Snisarenko), a photojournalism student living in war-torn Ukraine, finds her path towards independence and a brighter future challenged after falling for English (Dima Yaroshenko), a young soldier fresh from the war zone. Taking place after the 2014 Ukrainian revolution, Julia Blue is a different kind of war narrative, driven by two lead performances that are wise beyond their years. Told through the eyes of a young woman who must choose the best path for her future, love has never felt so fleeting.
