“Julia Blue” by Roxy Toporowych now streaming on Amazon Prime

“Julia Blue” was shot entirely in Ukraine and beautifully depicts the country and her people in the post-Maidan era. It is the first American independent narrative feature film to be entirely shot with all Ukrainian cast and crew.

Julia, a photojournalism student living in war-torn Ukraine, finds her path towards independence and a brighter future challenged after meeting and falling for English, a young soldier fresh from the war zone.
