Set six years in the future, following a brutal war in which the Ukraine has been reduced to a barren wasteland, Atlantis follows former soldier Serhiy, who works as a smelter whilst struggling to cope with life outside of the warzone, his PTSD making it impossible for him to adjust. Following the closure of the smelting factory, Serhiy comes into contact with Katya, a volunteer dedicated to exhuming the corpses of war victims. Shot with stunning precision cinematography by the director himself, Valentyn Vasyanovych’s tale of self-discovery proves that warmth can come from the bleakest of places. SE
