Bernard-Henri Lévy’s latest documentary titled Pourquoi l’Ukraine (Warum Ukraine in German and Why Ukraine in English) was released June 28, 2022.
On the ground at the front line of the country’s civilian resistance, Bernard-Henri Lévy records the war in Ukraine and urges the West to take action. A poignant immersion that resonates as an appeal for help in the name of democracy.
A discussion with the director will follow the screening. Razom President Dora Chomiak will moderate.

Bernard-Henri Lévy, philosopher, filmmaker, and author, has spent more than 50 years extensively reporting on human rights abuses around the world. His latest book, The will to see: Dispatches from a world of misery and hope, and accompanying documentary, follows Lévy into eight international hotspots, including Afghanistan; Bangladesh; Lesbos, Greece; Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan; Libya; Nigeria; Somalia, and Ukraine. In Ukraine, Lévy visits the frontlines again, observing how much the Ukrainian military has changed since the war began in 2014. In a searing account, he moves through Ukraine’s trenches and concludes that “the lost war in Ukraine…should lie heavy on our collective conscience.”
