Stanislav Bytiutskyi

24

Ukraine / 2016 / Colour / DV PAL / 38’

A film-critic/researcher and programmer, Stanislav Bytiutskyi (b. Kyiv 1984) assembles a fictional work with documentary feel. 24 is for much of its length an exercise in encroaching darkness as two 24-year-old refugees from war-torn eastern Ukraine (both of them born in the year of the country’s independence) chew over their lives in the tranquil apartment which provides them with a temporary safe haven. Stranded by circumstances in an unfamiliar environment, the disoriented duo must live vicariously by observing “normal” lives on TV or on the street. Post tenebras… lux? (Neil Young)
