Wow. Thanks so much for your support! We really appreciate all your messages & belief in the babushkas. This documentary will give voice to people rarely heard from; women who, despite living through a full serving of tragedy over the decades, have chosen their ancestral homeland and a spirit of self-determination above all else.
All within the context of the world’s worst nuclear accident.
YOU are helping us bring this crucial, fascinating story to the world. Thank you for your generous pledges. The campaign is getting traction. Have a look at today’s Voice of America story about the project (just out, link below, in Russian.)
We carry on. Please help spread the word about this project, far and wide. We can make this happen together!
With much gratitude,
Holly & Anne (& the entire Babushkas of Chernobyl team)
