A House Made of Splinters

1h 27m Documentary 2022

A temporary house for abandoned children near the front line in eastern Ukraine is run by a small group of social workers determined to provide comfort and safety.

It may be humble and somewhat run-down, but this house is filled with love and offers up to nine months of refuge to kids whose fate will be determined by the system. During this short time, the caretakers try to nurture within them a sense of stability and normalcy.

“Made with such aching sensitivity that it’s a marvel a camera was used and not some form of mind-meld.” ~Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times

“The film is a fine document of a few precious lives; what comfort can be taken from that is unclear.” ~Jack Seale, The Guardian
