“You are human, aren’t you?” ” “Nope.” Film Movement has revealed the official US trailer for bad roads, a feature film based on a play originally presented in London at the Royal Court Theatre. It was also Ukraine’s submission to the 2022 Oscars, before the start of the current war. Four short stories take place along the dangerous roads of Donbass during the war. There are no safe spaces and no one can understand what is happening with all the uncertainty in the region. Even while trapped in the chaos, some manage to exert authority over others. But in this world, where tomorrow may never come, not everyone is helpless and miserable. Even the most innocent victims can have their turn to take care of… Zoya Baranovska, Maryna Klimova, Anna Zhuravska, Ihor Koltovsky& Andriy Lelyukh. It feels like an intense and very dark set of stories about the horror of war – hopefully that can make a difference.
