Signs of War

Documentary Film, AT/NL/UA 2022, digital, 83 min, OmeU

Pierre Crom reports. In 2014, the photojournalist traveled to Ukraine to document the imminent conflict on the eastern border. “There is nothing that can protect you from what you see,” he says, capturing his first war. Juri Rechinsky shows Crom in an extensive interview, which together with his haunting photos and an unnerving score quickly develops an extremely grim pull.
