About the Event

Join us for the Philadelphia premiere of the Ukraine documentary "Cyberwar 2022" (52min), with a special message from director Pavel Cherepin followed by a Q&A panel with Paul M. Joyal and Dariya Orlova.

Cyberwar 2022 tells the story of Russian and Ukrainian battles that are currently raging in cyberspace. Demonstrating the significant collaboration between American, corporate, and allied cyber forces with Ukraine, this film explores the new challenges and opportunities that intelligence-sharing and technological know-how play in supporting Ukrainian cyber defense. In this new world, Ukrainian cyber intelligence is vital to the United State's cyber defense, and through working together the US and Ukraine have discovered the latest Russian cyber methods and tools.

This film is already receiving excellent reviews in European film festivals and was recently nominated in London for the Best International Documentary category at the Docuworld Festival in UK.
