Postcard to My Grandma

Short essay film "Postcard for my Grandma" is the director’s personal reflection on the war in Ukraine. It’s a poetic postcard to the director’s late Grandma, the survivor of the World War II who most of her life lived in Ukraine. The director used to send her postcards from different parts of the world, and now, during the war, she is sending her grandma a postcard with visuals of her house in the Odesa region, seeking consolation.
