Cinemas across the UK have come together in support of Ukraine, programming a series of charity screenings to raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s ongoing Humanitarian Appeal. In partnership with 606 Distribution and the BFI, with support from the UK Cinema Association, Everyman is hosting a night of screenings for Olga.
A talented teenage Ukrainian gymnast exiled in Switzerland dreams of Olympic gold in Elie Grappe's multi-award-winning drama. Fifteen-year-old Olga is trying to fit in with her new team in her new home. But as she prepares for the European Championship, the Ukrainian people stage a revolution. Olga is left a powerless, distant bystander as her mother, an investigative journalist, faces danger as she challenges a brutal regime. Can Olga reconcile her personal goals with the history unfolding in her homeland? A subtle, tensely handled tale of exile reflecting the pressures on young athletes, the clash between the personal and the political, and young woman's search for who she is and what she is prepared to sacrifice.
We will donate all proceeds from ticket sales to the DEC and their member charities. To further support the appeal, Everyman has also committed to donate £1 from the sale of every Spielburger sold between 30th March and 30th April, and you can find an easy donation point in all our venues.
Cinema brings us all together in good times and in bad; we offer our support and solidarity to those in Ukraine.
We reveal new films and events every Monday evening, so you know what's coming up at Everyman as soon as we do.
