Ohmatdyt: Post of Care

The documentary Ohmatdyt: Post of Care explores the work of the National Specialized Children's Hospital during the 2022 battle for Kyiv and the subsequent months. On the very first day of the war, without any instruction from the hospital administration, Ohmatdyt's medical staff moved into the hospital permanently, making it a 24-hour base of operations. Doctors and nurses asked their own children to sleep on the shelter’s floor together with the patients. The staff didn't return home for another 50 days, until the Ukrainian Armed Forces had repulsed Russian troops from the Kyiv Region.
