"Donbass" by Sergei Loznitsa - 121min - 2018
In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside killings and robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by separatist gangs.
In the Donbass, war is called peace, propaganda is uttered as truth and hatred is declared to be love.
A journey through the Donbass unfolds as a chain of curious adventures, where the grotesque and drama are as intertwined as life and death.
This is not a tale of one region, one country or one political system. It is about a world, lost in post-truth and fake identities. It is about each and every one of us.

Admission is free, but a contribution to La Chaîne du Bonheur is strongly encouraged, via the attached link as well as via a QR code shown at the beginning and end of the session.
