fiction series


With each year, urbanization and industrialization processes are making the environment in Ukraine less and less livable. It's time to become aware of our ecological conditions in order to preserve our nature and ensure a better quality of life for the future generations of Ukrainians. This project is aimed at showing the burning ecological problems, the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian war and ways to handle them.

The film will have to conceptual antagonists: the Ukrainian nature (in general; specifically, natural reserves that aren't subject to a lot of anthropogenic influence) and cities along with industrial objects, as well as the territories of intense combat operations that inevitably influence the ecological conditions in Ukraine. The film is centered around the conflict between the intact nature and forces of urbanization/industrialization, as well as the consequences of the war.

Locations: Ukraine, within a year. Biosphere reserves: Danube, Carpathian, Chornobyl, Black Sea, and Askania-Nova Biosphere Reserves. Big urbanized and industrial cities and suburbs: Kyiv, Dnipro, Odesa, Kryvyi Rih, etc. Cities and towns destroyed by war: Bucha, Irpin, Mariupol, Kherson, Bila Tserkva, Borodianka, etc.

By visual and storytelling means, the film will present the consequences of urbanization and the Russian-Ukrainian war to international audiences.
