Winner of the Grand prize at the 1971 Moscow Film Festival, White Bird with a Black Mark is set in western Ukraine, in an area that has passed through the control of several nations over the centuries. despairing at the poverty of is family, a boy decides the stork is the cause of all their problems, and sets out to kill it. But soon everyone's situation will be challenged, as World War II breaks out and the region is carved into warring battle zones, with brother being forced to fight against brother.

The story of war, love and death, captured on camera during the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, director Anastasia Starozhitskaya and her boyfriend Valery Lavrenov, a volunteer fighting in Eastern Ukraine, shoot what's happening to them and around them. They are behind the camera and in front of the lens as well.

Valery joined the fighting in the East, and then Anastasia followed. He wound up in the ill-fated Battle of Ilovaisk where he lost his closest brother-soldiers (the battle started on 7 August 2014, and ended with a massacre of hundreads of Ukrainians at the hands of pro-Russian forces). Traveling through the destruction, the ruined towns, she strives to understand the essence of war and love.

They openly discuss their feelings about the war, escape from their surroundings, and the trials of a life together.

film

Vechir na Ivana Kupala (The Eve of Ivan Kupala)

Drama, fantasy

In one hamlet lives a young farmhand, Peter, who works for the wealthy landowner, Korzh. Peter falls in love with the landowner's daughter, and the girl reciprocates his affection. But the father flatly refuses to allow his daughter to marry a hired hand. Despondent, Peter goes to the local tavern where he meets the tramp, Basavriuk, whom locals regard as a devil in the human form. The demon Basavryuk offers Peter a deal – if the young man helps the tramp, in return he will reveal to Peter how to win the beautiful Pidorka as his wife.

Vechir na Ivana Kupala is based on variations of a short story by Mykola Hohol (Gogol) and Ukrainian folk tales. It is an example of Illienko's cinematic surrealism using "surprising, at times twisted and confusing techniques and creating an unparalleled atmosphere. There are moments of hilarious slapstick, as well as sheer horror and everything in between," but the combination works together to form a modern masterpiece. (Flakey Foont, IMDB)
