Oleg Sentsov walks free!


For the past five years, Motovun FF has kept an empty chair at all of our screenings, for our unjustly imprisoned friend, brilliant Ukrainian filmmaker and activist Oleg Sentsov.

Among our guests, friends and staff members who’ve used Motovun as a platform to call for Oleg’s release were Masha Alekhina from Pussy Riot (who had experienced Putin’s gulags as a political prisoner herself), British producer Mike Downey, Polish film legend Agnieszka Holland… Today, we are thrilled to confirm that Oleg Sentsov was finally released, in a big prisoner exchange between Russia and Ukraine!
