“The pacing is deliberate but this cool approach serves only to magnify the distressing insights into a dangerous world in which lawless fanatics have assumed control.”~David Stratton, The Australian

Aroview: A 13-part exploration of the conflict between Ukraine and the Russian-supported Donetsk People's Republic throughout the mid-2010's, considered Europe's "forgotten war".

At times eerily familiar in it's presentation of a Ukraine destabalised by "fake news" and propaganda, this is a vivid and at times brutal depiction of the war, but shot through with cynical black humour. Winner of the Un Certain Regard award for Best Director at Cannes 2018.
