Ruins in Reverse

Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 3

A socialist housing project in southern Ukraine. Crumbling, hollowed out, with a truly ruinous presence; it’s not only a relict of past times, but also a materials store for new structures. Olena Newkryta’s cinematic essay follows the process of recycling the building and draws a symbol for the processual reworking of Soviet history.
