Atlantis, dir. Valentyn Vasyanovych, Ukraine 2019, 104 min., Ukrainian with English subtitles
Eastern Ukraine, 2025. The war has ended, leaving the country in ruins – and Sergey (Andriy Rymaruk), a former soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, is struggling to his new reality. After losing his job as a steelworker, Sergey joins Katya (Liudmyla Bileka) as a volunteer for the Black Tulip Mission, recovering the degraded bodies of soldiers killed in the conflict – and hoping to understand if, and how, he might shape for himself a better future.
Winner of Best Film in the Horizons section of the 76th Venice International Film Festival, Valentyn Vasyanovych’s post-apocalyptic drama is an urgent parable of life after war. Featuring a largely non-professional cast (including Ryamaruk, himself a veteran of the Donbas War), Atlantis is an once a bleak tale about the horrors of conflict – and an optimistic reassurance that another world might be possible.
