Famine sheds light on the Soviet-Russian famine during the 1920s. International experts discuss its causes and the phenomenon of unprecedented solidarity and open-mindedness that defied state borders and politics and saved the lives of thousands of people. The film does not only recount political events but, above all, tells a story about humanitarian aid and solidarity, so that it is never forgotten. The project was financed through crowdfunding, which shows that even a hundred years later, solidarity for a good cause is possible
