ATLANTIS d. Valentyn Vasyanovych, 2019 at ICA (07 JUL 14:00).
- “Winner of Best Film in the Horizons section of the 76th Venice International Film Festival, Valentyn Vasyanovych’s post-apocalyptic drama is an urgent parable of life after war. Featuring a largely non-professional cast (including lead actor Andriy Rymaruk, himself a veteran of the Donbas War), ATLANTIS is at once a bleak tale about the horrors of conflict – and an optimistic reassurance that another world might be possible.” (ICA)
