Chernobyl of Love (film), 2013


In a hotel in Kiev a young women after murdering a man, is consuming his brain. Her act of cannibalism evokes traumatic memories which take us to the Red Forest near the abandoned town of Chernobyl in the Ukraine. It relates through harsh, visceral yet at once luxuriant imagery a depiction of humanity’s deepest, darkest, and basest of instincts framed within the context of love story. It is a study of the psychopathology of young women whose traumatic past leads her to commit a crime. As with the horrific aftermath and social impact of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster the film is an account, and meditation upon emotional barbarism and the destruction of human relationships.
