Rex Cinema: Ukrainian Fundraising Screening: Olga

Hollywood blockbuster and classic movies in an independent, 1920s-built cinema in Wareham…

  UK cinemas have come together in support of Ukraine with a series of preview charity screenings of Olga, a new film about a young female Ukrainian gymnast forced to train in exile. The REX Cinema will donate all ticket profits to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and their ongoing humanitarian support efforts in Ukraine. These screenings are a result of a partnership from 606 Distribution and the BFI, with support from the UK Cinema Association. A talented teenage Ukrainian gymnast exiled in Switzerland dreams of Olympic gold in Elie Grappe’s multi award winning drama. Fifteen-year-old Olga is trying to fit in with her new team in her new home. But as she prepares for the European Championship, the Ukrainian people stage a revolution. Olga is left a powerless, distant bystander as her mother, an investigative journalist, faces danger as she challenges a brutal regime. Can Olga reconcile her personal goals with the history unfolding in her homeland? A subtle, tensely handled tale of exile reflecting the pressures on young athletes, the clash between the personal and the political, and young woman’s search for who she is and what she is prepared to sacrifice.

The event is finished.
