Dir. Valentyn Vasyanovych. Ukraine. 2019, 108 mins. In Ukrainian with English subtitles. DCP. With Andriy Rymaruk, Liudmyla Bileka, Vasyl Antoniak.
In this ominous, visionary masterstroke of speculative fiction, it’s 2025 and Eastern Ukraine lies ravaged and desolate. Seeking salvation, Sergey, a defeated former soldier haunted by his experiences, meets Katya and volunteers for an effort, dubbed the Black Tulip mission, to exhume the forgotten dead. As they carry out their dreary but cathartic labor, the two grow closer, catching a glimmer of a chance at a new life.

The Ukrainian director Valentyn Vasyanovych makes films of icy beauty and brittle humanity. Beginning with 2017’s Black Level, he has honed a tableau aesthetic defined by an eerily cadenced sense of composition that hearkens back to the silent era, while looking forward to an inhospitable future and our tentative place within it. On the occasion of the New York premiere of Vasyanovych’s latest film, Reflection, in First Look 2022, MoMI invites audiences to consider Vasyanovych’s three narrative features as a poetic triptych, while also looking to the filmmaker’s key early documentary (Crepuscule) and a charming early short (Counterclockwise).
