The Other Chelsea – A Story from Donezk

The Other Chelsea

As part of the Ö1 special programme focus on the Ukraine, the documentary film “The Other Chelsea – Eine Geschichte aus Donezk”, which was awarded the “Max Ophüls Preis 2011”, will have its Austrian premiere on 22 May. Afterwards, the director of the documentary film, Jakob Preuss will take part in the discussion with the audience.

About the film: Money friends and oligarchs – two opposing worlds – meet in a football stadium and both sides are united by their love of the local football team. The billionaire Rinat Achmetow generously invests in the club, but the sports success are in crass contradiction to the political and social stagnation in the country.

In addition to film and podium discussion there will be music, vodka and DJing in the foyer of the cinema!!

The film premiere is a part of the project “Dossier Ukraine”- civil society activities in the Ukraine, with support of ERSTE Foundation, in cooperation with Ö1 and Der Standard.
