Kseniya Simonova won Ukraine’s Got Talent with her gobsmacking sand animation of the country’s military history, which she created by tracing figures in sand on a light table then projecting it onto a screen for the audience, in real time. You don’t have to know what Holodomor is to be moved – the collective tears of the audience says it all.
