A story of women-editors working in a decrepit film studio in Kyiv, Ukraine. They still work with film and do not trust computers. They dream of working on real films again, while editing students’ works, watching old movies and caring for cats. Then they are invited to see a 3D movie.

  • xrystyna's rating of the film Positive

    a gentle and humane portrait of women who used to work on proper films in a busy and bustling environment of the Ukrainian Soviet film studio (we see them in the old documentary they show to the crew making this short), while now they are left with a very few tasks: editing students' works, looking after cats and plants, contemplating 'the wild beauty' of an unkempt garden surrounding a decrepit building
