Cinetree Life on Hold

Life on Hold is a short documentary film about universal feelings of longing and displacement. With the war in Ukraine raging on for over a year, six persons share their heartfelt story of leading a life on hold, uncertain of what the future will bring.

Inspired by a photo series by photographer Eelco Wortman.

Life on Hold was released on the 24th of February, a year after the start of the war. On Cinetree, in debate centre De Balie and several other platforms online.
