Carol of the Bells (Shchedryk)

Carol of the Bells

Set in pre and post-war Ukraine, Carol of the Bells centres on the peaceful existence of three families – one Polish, one Ukranian, one Jewish – in the same large house, which is shattered first by Nazi and then by Soviet occupations of the country. Featuring an enchanting orchestral soundtrack, Carol of the Bells was inspired by Roberto Benigni’s Academy Award-winning drama ??Life is Beautiful.
