    Vika: Trailer

    Vika is the story of her final year at a rural boarding school in Eastern Ukraine. It’s also the story of the bond she fights to maintain with her 10 year-old sister, Arina. Arina was adopted by a family in Toronto four years ago, during the Ukrainian revolution.

    Arina has a blissful childhood, with a family in Toronto offering her guidance, unconditional love and the types of opportunities Vika never had. Vika, meanwhile, is stepping out into the world as an adult for the first time, moving to another city  and leaving behind the only support she’s ever known. Vika hasn’t seen Arina since she left Ukraine, but her ultimate goal is to one day reunite with her sister — the only family she has left — and start a life in Canada.

    This short film will be airing as part of the Hot Docs Film Festival, airing April 26 – May 6, 2018.

    UIA Safety Film

    No one wants awfully boring safety films. For this reason together with Ukraine animation artist Yuriy Motrych we crafted safety film in the style of Suprematism. What you are about to see is inspired with artworks of famous Ukrainian painter Kazimir Malevich who’s also regarded a founder of Suprematism. We released the safety video on February 23, 2018 which would have been Kazimir Malevich 140th birthday.

    Winter in Chernobyl captured in infrared

    Captured through a full spectrum Kolari Vision infrared camera, photographer Vladimir Migutin adds more surreality to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a 1000 square mile area around the tragic site of the nuclear power plant disaster. With trees tinged white and grounds and leaves taking on the colour pink, the disaster zone transforms into a dreamlike, unreal environment. See more of his work on Facebook and on Instagram.

    Apple Watch commercial shot in Kyiv

    Apple’s latest commercial may feel a bit familiar to those who have travelled within Ukraine.

    In the new ad “Roll,” we see a skateboarder walking through a crowded train station. That train station(s) is Kyiv’s Central Railway Station and Zoloti Vorota metro station. He pops in a pair of AirPods, browses through a list of Apple Music selections — landing on “Misbehaving” by Labrinth — on his Apple Watch and presses play.

    The ad turns into a type of dream sequence, with the skateboarder turning the train station into his personal playground, weaving through the crowd performing stunts, tricks and causing explosions to the beat of the music.

    The ad “Roll” was first aired during the company’s product unveiling bonanza on Tuesday. Like other recent Apple commercials, the latest Series 3 spot features an upbeat track and high production value, with the device itself receiving only minimal screen time.
