Alisa Kovalenko is an award-winning director, from Zaporizhia, Ukraine. Following her debut documentary Sister Zo, Alisa (like many other Ukrainian directors) found herself in the midst of the turmoil of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and of the subsequent war in Eastern Ukraine. These events took her from the barricades of Maidan to the toughest battle of the war – the battle for the Donetsk airport in Donbas. In 2015, she released her second full-length documentary, Alisa in Warland, which premiered the same year at the ‘First Appearance’ competition at the IDFA in Amsterdam. Following this success, Alisa worked for more than two years on Home Games, filmed in Ukraine, France and Poland.
