Close Relations Regie Vitaly Mansky
It’s a documentation of one family’s identity, but it ends up as such a complex web that one can only sadly agree with the skeptical attitudes portrayed in it – as long as identity is that personal and that robust, we will cling to our beliefs more than we do to facts. Setting out to portray the different attitudes to the war in the Ukraine, Mansky captures the very formation of national identity that feels relevant and profound.

Mansky never downplays the stickiness of these subjects, which is why the issues he presents might seem impenetrable at times – or, for a nation wondering how long its own transition will last, analogous or acutely painful. Regardless of your political affiliation at home or abroad, it’s a remarkable document.

This broad geographical sweep of the film is everything. Of the numerous documentaries already made on the Ukraine crisis, most have focused their gaze on Kiev… Mansky by contrast is intent on showing the range of opinion that exists even within his own family… It is as complex as the number of minds in proximity to it, but reduced by community myths and media propaganda with its urge toward othering hatred.
