GLORY TO THE HEROES + Q&A

Director: BERNARD-HENRI LÉVY & MARC ROUSSEL

89 mins, France, 2023, Digital, Subtitled


To mark two years since the start of the illegal, unprovoked, and unjustified aggression against Ukraine, the Ukrainian and French Embassies in Ireland, in association with the IFI, present the Irish premiere screening of French philosopher and filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy’s new documentary Glory to the Heroes (L’Ukraine au Coeur) followed by a discussion with guest speakers on Saturday 24th.

In Glory to the Heroes, Lévy, along with his co-director Marc Roussel, spends the 2023 summer in eastern Ukraine recording for the world a passionate ode to Ukraine’s courage on the battlefield. On the ground during the Ukrainian counteroffensive, Lévy and Roussel embed with elite forces on the frontline. With unprecedented access, they capture the horrors of war, the hopefulness of the Ukrainian citizens, and their optimism in the face of senseless destruction.
