After the screening there will be a discussion with Daniel Cisek and Leila Mendelovici from the Political Section of the US Embassy in Ukraine.
Daniel is interested in the issue of women serving in the military, whether in the United States, Ukraine, or other countries. In the United States, the opportunity to serve in the military has opened up more widely thanks to the efforts of many women who have fought for equal rights. Many women have also answered the call to service in Ukraine to defend their country from outside aggression. I’m very interested to hear the opinions of the Ukrainian audience about this issue. I also chose this movie because it focuses on the close working relationship and emotional connection that can develop between people and dogs, which is a fascinating subject in its own right.
As to Leila, she thinks it is important to strong female characters in military roles. There is a lot of bias in the United States and I am sure all over the work about the role of women in the military – and I think that movies that portray women in key military roles goes a long way to dispel any negative thinking on that front. Also, as an animal lover, I specifically was touched by the bond formed between Megan and her IED smelling canine.
