    Uljana Kim, the Korean-Kyrgyzstani producer of such acclaimed documentaries as Mariupolis and The Natural History of Destruction, will be honored at this year’s European Film Awards with the 2023 Eurimages International Co-Production award.

    In a statement, the European Film Academy said Kim was being honored “to mark her outstanding commitment to co-production and the strong co-producing partnerships she has built up over the years. It is also an acknowledgment of the excellent track record of her company in the competitive arena of the Eurimages co-production support program.”
