2019: BABI YAR by Sergei Loznitsa is a radical act of transforming the language of cinema. In order to recreate on screen the humanitarian tragedy which has become one of the symbols of the XX century, director Sergei Loznitsa breaks up traditional narrative and abandons the concept of a «main hero».The subject of the film is a tragedy of the «chorus».

A pandemic disaster known to us today as “Holocaust” started with individual acts of barbarity and localized killings. The film traces the origins of the catastrophe and sheds light on the initial events of the drama, which ultimately led to the point of no return.
