“Mariupol. Reenactment” is a film about a lost city. The director of the film, Svitlana Lishchynska, who was born in Mariupol, shares her memories and tells the story of her relationship with the city. Svitlana meets with refugees from Mariupol in order to remember what the city had been like before it was destroyed by the Russian troops. The film characters are people thanks to whom the city flourished and developed, people who invested their souls into it, and from whom the city and the home wsa taken away, when Russia decided to “liberate” the city. Only photo shots in the phones and the photos that survived passing through filtering checkpoints remind of the past. The director experiences the loss together with her interlocutors. This film is very personal. This is a farewell film. This is the director’s ode to the shot homeland.
