In this 2022 fly-on-the-wall documentary from director Simon Lereng Wilmont and the BBC, viewers intimately observe some of Ukraine's most vulnerable war victims: its children.

At the Priyut, a shelter in Lysychansk, Eastern Ukraine, firm but deeply caring social workers look after children whose parents have struggled to live with the consequences of the Russo-Ukrainian war, which first began in 2014 in Eastern Ukraine.

Oscar-nominated director Simon Lereng Wilmont spent years filming two reportage documentaries about those living near the frontline of Russia's war in Eastern Ukraine.

A House Made of Splinters, which won an award for Best Director at the 2022 Sundance Festival, was the second film in this series.
