(German title: Taubes Gestein)
A film by Taras Tomenko / Ukraine / 2022 / 80 Minutes
72nd Berlin International Film Festival / in Generation Kplus
Nastya was six when three missiles fired by the Russian army hit her house on New Year's Eve. She survived but lost her father, childhood and faith in life. To the likes of her the war has become something commonplace, like the landscape outside the window. Yet Nastya has dreams. Like every girl, she dreams of a new house and a dog and keeps on writing letters to Santa asking him to bring her father back. According to official statistics, approximately 10,000 children currently reside in the Donbas warzone. The method of documentary surveillance of characters and non-intrusion into their personal space made it possible to show the dramatism of children’s life on the front line.
