In a remote village, whose name roughly means “a cold place”, this film looks for warmth in encounters. The Ukrainian village of Stuzhytsya is situated in the Carpathian Mountains in the border triangle between Poland and Slovakia. The three elderly female protagonists – a farmer, a post office clerk and a biologist – are firmly rooted in a place where hardly any young people are left in 2019, the year of Zelensky’s election victory. Over time, the film crew also becomes, at least temporarily, a valued part of the village community.
Billionaires Gnaw Their Tongues from the Pain aka Lost Leaders #22 is a handmade short film created in collaboration with sound artist Jackie Gallant. Billionaires… combines 16mm and 35mm found footage, hand-woven elements and DIY frame-by-frame scanning using a Lego-modded lightbox. The film is “inspired” by the hideous spectacle of the richest men in the world pretending to be astronauts. It takes a fuck-ton of hubris to strut around like latter day space “pioneers” while the world burns.

Images of an oppressive “normality” between alarm sirens and explosions are combined with the touching words of a young woman who tries not to lose herself and her life to the new reality.
The rough, unkempt facades in Prenzlauer Berg – as if the skin had been peeled off the houses, says photographer Tina Bara. Having grown up in a prefabricated building, the young woman was drawn to East Berlin. She quickly got in conflict with the state, just like the artists Cornelia Schleime and Gabriele Stötzer, whom director Pamela Meyer-Arndt questions in her film about memories, traumas and creative genesis.
