Sergei Loznitsa’s Donbass consists of a series of narrative fragments touching upon the nature of the current war between Russia and Ukraine. The film departs from a conventional depiction of war; a chronological and historical order is substituted with a grotesque and phantasmagorical scene revealing the absurdity of destruction. How does propaganda shape the individual’s perception of events? How does “fake news” construct alternative truths and realities? In a masterfully constructed film, which was awarded an Un Certain Regard honor for Best Director at Cannes in 2018, Loznitsa delves into the psychology of war. In English and Russian with English subtitles.
