In Ukraine

Eighteen months after the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine War, while most of us tend to forget it ever existed, this film provides a firsthand experience of the disaster. We have all grown weary of wartime images: explosions, rocket blasts and soldiers crowd our television screens. The filmmakers have chosen a different imagery: a broad and quiet camera movement from Kiev to Kharkov, across wounded cities and deserted villages. Accompanied by a soft soundtrack, almost without dialogue, the beautiful cinematography avoids the routine romantization of war, and instead of leaving the viewers distant and detached, it touches their hearts.
