The Hard Earth
HD, 2017, 1:00:06
An experimental documentary charting the relationship of five Ukrainians and one Ukrainian American to the 2014 revolution and preceding war.
The film is shot over the central and western regions of Ukraine, immediately post-revolution. Six figures explain their relationship to recent events and their plans for the future. The Euromaidan protests are discussed as the transforming event that leads to dense stories of the annexation of Crimea, warfare, and the disillusionment of the USSR.
