Mariia Ponomarova (Master of Film, Class of 2016) just released her film ‘Nice Ladies’ in the Netherlands. The film received raving reviews in the Dutch newspapers (a.o. NRC and Volkskrant)

'Nice Ladies', the charming over-50’s cheerleading team from Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine is preparing to take part in the European cheerleading championships. There they will have to battle their younger competitors in the over-25 category. Their unbreakable bond is sorely tested by the escalation of Russia’s war against their home country. They face the impossible task of choosing between the motherland and becoming a granny, between staying and fleeing.
