Ukrainian filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa (A Gentle Creature) returns with Donbass, a blackly comic satire of the ongoing conflict in the titular region of Ukraine.

Inspired by amateur videos posted on social media, Loznitsa delivers a series of 13 comic vignettes that reflect the confusing political situation playing out in his country.

Donbass is in UK/ROI cinemas and on VOD April 26th.

Check out the UK trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside killings and robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by separatist gangs. 

In the Donbass, war is called peace, propaganda is uttered as truth and hatred is declared to be love. 

A journey through the Donbass unfolds as a chain of curious adventures, where the grotesque and drama are as intertwined as life and death. This is not a tale of one region, one country or one political system. It is about a world, lost in post-truth and fake identities. It is about each and every one of us.
