BAD ROADS (2020)
Four short stories are set along the roads of Donbas 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. But in this world, where tomorrow may never come, not everyone is defenseless and miserable - and even the most innocent victims may have their turn at taking charge.
Bad Roads is a Ukrainian drama film directed by Natalya Vorozhbyt and released in 2020. It premiered at the 35th Venice International Critics' Week, where it was screened in competition, and was Ukraine's nomination for this year's Academy Awards.
