About the film

Winemaking is one of many Ukrainian industries to suffer from the 2022 Russian invasion. The documentary “Wounded Land: The Unbroken Spirit of Ukraine” tells the stories of Ukrainian vintners and farmers working to keep their entrepreneurial spirits alive during wartime. It is an inspiring story of hardship, perseverance and deep love for one’s land.
