Sound can create very powerful images in our minds. If you remove the sound from a horror movie, it’s not scary. It’s the sound that helps us enter the frightening and at times hopeful universe of The Eyes of War. These three cuts are a good summary of the series’ immersive experience, which you can read in full here.
1. Kharkiv and Nikolaev morgues
In the Kharkov morgue, Placid Garcia-Planas stumbles upon a small iron door. When he opens it, he discovers horror. More than 150 corpses of civilians accumulated in the courtyard of the morgue.

2. Mother’s Desperate Escape
Zelensky just declared martial law. All men between the ages of 18 and 60 can be called up for military service. A desperate mother tries to run away with her 19-year-old son. He wants to save him from the war. On a broken car that stops every few minutes, he sets off. The queue to escape the city is endless.

Policemen armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles approach the car. When this mother thinks they’re all going to be imprisoned, something no one expects happens…

Maria Paz Lopez tells us how to prepare for a conversation with a man who is still in shock after he had to quit.
