This Rain Will Never Stop is an award winning documentary that takes the audience on a powerful, visually arresting journey through humanity’s endless cycle of war and peace.

The film follows 20-year-old Andriy Suleyman as he tries to secure a sustainable future while navigating the human toll of armed conflict.

From the Syrian civil war to strife in Ukraine, Andriy’s existence is framed by the seemingly eternal flow of life and death.

Told in a unique and sometimes experimental fashion - this beautiful film shows life inside Ukraine rarely seen before, and a sad premonition of what was to come.

“It’s a brave and uncompromisingly artistic attempt to outline the contours of a much larger, perhaps species-wide soul sickness: the psychological and philosophical displacement that war churns up in its wake.” Variety

All the benefits and screening fees from this film will go directly to filmmaker Alina Gorlova, who is currently still in Ukraine.
