About War on Education

he showing of the documentary 'War on Education’ falls under the larger campaign to raise awareness and reflect on the impact of the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The makers highlight that, "While the media often highlights the visible – Russian attacks on Ukrainian cites and the news from the frontline, one critical aspect remains largely overlooked: the impact of war on education." Creator Stefano di Pietro, "was inspired to make "War on Education” after having made "Books not Bombs", a short film created in 2022, aimed to gather the funds needed to print the schoolbook “Ukraine and the World", when the printing budgets of Ukraine were directed to the war effort."

The documentary features the authors of the textbooks Ukraine and the World, Iryna Kostyuk and Maryna Kaftan, who organised interviews, connected to policy makers, and helped "find and clear archival footage." Stefano Di Pietro emphasises that "Talking with many amazing Ukrainians during wartime, I realised there was a much bigger story to tell, one that connects to universal and timeless values that I deeply care about, and I always try to communicate in my films."

Moreover, the documentary features insightful interviews with prominent figures from international NGOs, governmental bodies, journalists, and educators, “War on Education” deeply covers this issue. The Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine, as well as Emmanuelle Abrioux, Chief of Education at UNICEF Ukraine, and other notable characters in this field, share their invaluable perspectives as well as possible solutions for the problem.
