Leo Barraclough International Features Editor Petr Pavel, President of the Czech Republic, met with Ukrainian filmmaker Oleh Sentsov Sunday ahead of the world premiere of Sentsov’s documentary “Real” at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.

Described as an “accidental” film, the 88-minute feature is entirely comprised of footage Sentsov shot in a trench in Ukraine’s Donbas region after a nearby unit was ambushed by Russian forces.

Speaking after the meeting, Pavel told Variety that Sentsov hadn’t made any request for additional assistance for Ukraine from the Czech Republic. “He only appreciated that we are doing our best, especially when it comes to the ammunition initiative and also continued support on bilateral and multilateral fora.

We will continue that support because we believe that it is crucially important for us as it is for Ukraine.” Pavel, a former army general, said he hadn’t seen Sentsov’s film but he’d read about its content.
