This is a War, Baby

Eto voyna detka

Directed by Yuri Pupyrin
Ukraine, 2017


Without showing any explicit battle footage, this film nevertheless manages to show the life of Ukrainian soldiers and volunteers on the Donetsk front. Images of ruin and destruction are transformed into a tragicomic parable of survival in a provisional space-time.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
