Split into thirteen vignettes, Loznitsa explores the corroding effects of nationalist politics in the midst of the contemporary conflict of Russia’s incursions into the Ukraine. A man won’t accept it when his vehicle is requisitioned by the military. A German journalist is confronted with fascist taunts from Russian soldiers. A woman slandered in a newspaper comes after a councilman with a bucket containing revenge. A horrific beating merges into a grotesque wedding that accelerates into a nightmare.
Blurring the line between fact and fiction, Loznitsa’s latest eagle-eyed work blends mockumentary, fake news, humour, horror, and urgent moral messages to create a sprawling treatise on the current state of the world that is as brilliant as it is tragic.
Ukrainian and Russian language, English subtitles.
