Switzerland 2021 – Director: Lesia Kordonets – Original language: English, Ukrainian – Subtitles: English, French, German

Sport and politics have never been completely separable. When the Crimean peninsula was annexed by Russia in 2014, the Ukrainian Paralympic team lost their new training centre overnight. For five athletes and an enchantingly imperturbable official, it is the start of the long road to medals in Rio de Janeiro. Jan Sebening

We present the German premiere of the film.
