In 2014, the Winter Paralympic Games are taking place in parallel with the russian annexation of Crimea. During the Games, a new border is drawn. The film depicts Ukrainian Paralympic Athletes who grow above their physical boundaries, while around them political boundaries are pushed back and forth. Following five Ukrainian athletes forced to adapt their personal and professional lives to the ongoing armed conflict, Pushing Boundaries is a relevant reflection on the human capacity to push back borders.

Introduction & discussion with the director Lesia Kordonets

Language: Ukrainian, Russian with English Subtitles
