Synopsis

This film documents evacuation and rescue operations in the small town of Marinka in the Donetsk region from the spring to the autumn of 2022. The impressive close-up footage of the operations is from a GoPro camera worn by police officers who repeatedly drive around the town in a white van which the civilians call the "White Angel". In the spring of 2023, Arndt Ginzel and his team returned to Ukraine and spoke with the rescuers and survivors about their traumatic experiences – and about the demise of their home town, which no longer exists.
"The survivors' testimony speaks of loss, of pain and grief, but also of hopes and dreams," comments festival director Christoph Terhechte. "More than a film about war, 'White Angel – The End of Marinka' is a document of humanity and a longing for peace." [66 DOK Leipzig, PR]
