Leo Barraclough International Features Editor Leading documentary specialist Autlook Filmsales has secured international sales rights to “Us, Our Pets and the War,” which looks at the impact of the war in Ukraine on animals, and how the conflict led to the biggest pet evacuation in history.

The film, which became the highest-grossing theatrically released documentary in Ukraine of all time, is directed by investigative journalist and YouTube vlogger Anton Ptushkin.

Autlook boss Salma Abdalla said: “The film’s powerful message of compassion is especially relevant in today’s world, and we believe it will connect with viewers on a deep emotional level.” Executive producer Elizabeth Trojian said the film “highlights the strength of the human spirit and the bond between Ukrainians and their animals.” The film is a Ukrainian-Canadian co-production between Yap Films and VSE SAM in association with the WNET Group, PBS and CPB, and CBC, with the participation of the Rogers Documentary Fund.

Ptushkin is a former travel vlogger with over 5.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channels. In April 2022, he decided to devote himself to reporting on the war in Ukraine.
