Movie Info

In the eastern region of Donbass, a hybrid war blends open armed conflict, crimes and looting perpetrated by separatist gangs. In Donbas, war is called peace, propaganda is erected in truth and hate claims to be love. A journey through the Donbass is a series of crazy adventures in which the grotesque and the tragic mingle like life and death. This is not a tale about a region, a country or a political system but about a world lost in the after-truth and false identities. This concerns each of us.


Critic Reviews for Donbass

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (4)

A brilliant formalist, Loznitsa likes to turn his camera on crowds in motion, turning each sequence into a collective indictment.

Donbass is a flawed, but vivid achievement.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A scathing portrait of a society where human interaction has descended to a level of barbarity more in keeping with late antiquity than the so-called contemporary civilized world.

Powerful if ultimately enervating...

Despite its political bite, there's an emptiness to Donbass.

Shrewdly targets several dimensions...utilized to punish Ukraine...Extraordinarily canny in showing how...history is frequently re-written and "news" is scripted.
