Does Your Hand Shake, Vladimir? // Odveig Klyve

Voices from all over the world are heard in this short documentary expressing their reaction to the war in Ukraine, by translating and reading a poem. A Norwegian poet wrote this poem on March 14, 2022 and published it on social media the same day. The poem was quickly shared several thousand times. And spontaneously people started to translate the text. The poem has now been translated into more than 100 different languages and dialects. The film is available subtitled in English, Norwegian, Ukrainian, Russian, Polish and French.
