Documentary Film Premiere «Birth. Humane way» by Ukrainian filmmaker Olena Solodovnikova
- America House (map)
Olena filmed this documentary while being pregnant. That was rather a difficult period in her life since for a couple of times her baby could have died. This film is a unique social experiment that aims to show the situation in Ukrainian hospitals and maternity wards. In this documentary Olena tries to depict an attitude of doctors to pregnant women. Medical staff was often rude, irresponsible, asking for a bribe. She tries to look for the answer why doctors are behaving poorly and why most of Ukrainian female patients put up with this kind of attitude?
The film will be shown in Russian with English subtitles.
After film screening you are kindly invited to join the discussion with our special guest - famous gynecologist Sergey Baksheev.

In 2014, she negotiated the release of her husband, military reporter, Yegor Vorobyov, from captivity. Since the beginning of the war, she has been making videos from the hot spots in Ukraine.
