ATLANTIS

Aug. 26, 2023 |

20:00 UTO KINO

The existence of Atlantis has been debated ever since it appeared in Plato’s writings, where it stood as an allegory on the hubris of nations. Valentyn Vasyanovych’s 2019 film lends the name to an anti-utopia in Ukraine in the near future. Following the 2014 Russian invasion that displaced at least 1,500,000 inhabitants from occupied Crimea and Donbas, a large area of eastern Ukraine descended into a desert unfit for human habitation. Pit waste polluted the land, infrastructure was destroyed, and acres of flooded mines poisoned wells and rivers. In a few more years the land will be a lifeless exclusion zone like Chernobyl.

/Atlantis/ (2019) directed by Valentyn Vasyanovych. Language: Ukrainian with English subtitles.
