Notes from Underground
Uli Golub, Ukraine 2016, 13'23''
The film is depicting daily life of a character who’s running away from frustrating reality. Deceived by social roles and human relations, frightened by riots and military unrest in the country, this man lives cloistered in his apartment, resembling a Noah’s Ark, but instead of animals, stuffed with all kinds of objects and belongings. Step by step the viewer gets sucked into this world, where objects reign and are the only salvation in this constantly changing precarious world. This is a collaged narrative, composed of real events, personal stories, media propaganda, imagined doomsday nightmares. Thus, through a very personal narrative, current trauma and distress of contemporary society is revealed.
