Montreal/MML Inc.: Adriana Luhovy is currently working on a feature documentary film, tentatively titled “Recovery Room”, for which she is director and cameraperson.
The documentary deals with the current war in Eastern Ukraine and the diaspora’s response on a humanitarian level. It is based on interviews, unique archival footage, contributing to a better understanding of the war, its effect on the young men and women fighting, and why/how Ukrainians across Canada are providing humanitarian assistance. It follows the journey of the patients and medical teams, both Canadian and Ukrainian, over the course of two medical missions. It captures the close interaction between them.
The documentary exposes the human stories of many of the Ukrainian patients conveying what they have gone through before, during and after their significant psychological and physical trauma, put in context of the war.
