Donbass (Sergei Loznitsa)

Donbass

Sergei Loznitsa

The Donbass mining area is Ukrainian, according to the political atlas, but the Russians do not share this view: after Crimea, the Donbass seems to be inexorably moving towards a Russian-speaking secession. Under Loznitsa’s keen gaze, the Donbass “war” is a breeding ground for lies, for sham posturing, for propaganda and fake news. This “survival manual” sheds light on the region from a new angle, laying bare the reality of what is a civil war in all but name.
