MakeCoffeeNotWAR - An idea of a non-profit and independent act of a film & photography document about the Ukrainian Conflict. Also an idea of the social activism that uses new media to help the population living in the area of military operation.

1_A digest of MakeCoffeeNotWAR idea

An independent initiative of the production of a photographic and documentary films from the area of a conflict in Ukraine, focusing on social aspects. It is also an attempt of a social activism with the use of ‘new media’ and ‘web 2.0’ net as financing sources of a non-governmental foundation supporting children from Lugansk and Donieck.

We are concerned about the situation, which the populace form the area of an armed conflict is in. We want to show, as Europeans and citizens of the World, that we are not indifferent. Using our competencies, we want to take part in the debate about the humanitarian condition of the society of the World.

We are interested only in the social background. We are not interested in political aspects and we are not on either side of the conflict. We are independent observers, who want to show the impact of the war on both sides of the conflict.

A photographic document taken with a medium format camera of a Soviet-Ukrainian production as well as a full-length documentary film will constitute a cultural product.

The financing consists in private financial means and it is an independent funding initiative but it consists also in an action called a ‘financial social recycling’. The idea is to reuse the financial resources to maximise their use in social aspects and to meet more social needs.

Financial Social Recycling
Financial Social Recycling

MakeCoffeeNotWAR intends to gain the fund of 7.000$ for the production of the documentary film and the photographic document, thanks to one of popular platforms of social financing (Kickstarter). Then, after having gathered the required sum, getting the necessary filmic equipment, which after having achieved the established goals, will be sold on an Internet auction platform (ebay) and the money will supply the account of I Love Ukraine foundation.

Funds collected in this way will be used for cultural and social productions and reused for the purposes of humanitarian aid for the children from the war zones.

The origins of the name ‘MakeCoffeeNotWAR’ refers to the social movement Make Tea Not War, but also alludes to the ritual of drinking coffee. This ritual conduces to a short meditation, to a pause and to thinking processes – to distance yourself from living in a consumerist society.

2_Main cultural things:

a) Photographic document - Kiev 88 (КИЕВ) the name of a Soviet-Ukrainian camera, produced by Arsenal plants in Kiev, in 1984. Almost a copy of the first Swedish civilian camera Hasselblad 1600F/1000F, for this reason called ‘Hasselbladzki’.

b) Documentary film – a full-length documentary film showing the war from the side of passive participants – the local population.

c) Social activism – actions foresee a pro tempore involvement in social assistance during the realisation of the documentary. Finally, after the documentary release, the gathered money will supply the account of humanitarian organisation I Love Ukriane.

3_Why Ukraine?

We are aware that armed conflicts degrade socially vast areas of the World. However, we focus on the situation in Ukraine, because it is geographically our closest conflict, which in humanitarian understanding concerns the international community, and in the case of the of Central and Eastern Europe inhabitants also territorial safety.
