BAD ROADS | 2022 UKRAINIAN ACADEMY AWARD ENTRY

Four short stories are set along the treacherous roads of Donbass, Ukraine during the war. There are no safe spaces and no one can make sense of just what is going on. Even as they are trapped in the chaos, some manage to wield authority over others. Originally presented on stage at the Royal Court Theater in London and adapted powerfully by writer/director Natalya Vorozhbit, BAD ROADS presents a series of tension-packed vignettes, each built around a dangerous encounter on the byways of Eastern Ukraine, with a particular sensitivity to the vulnerability of women during wartime. NR. 102 minutes.

“Insightful…. Putting regular citizens who suddenly find themselves in extraordinary circumstances under a microscope, she shows how women bear the brunt of the brutality of war, even if nominally only the men are fighting.” Boyd van Hoeij, The Film Verdict
