Eastern Ukraine, 2025. A desert unsuitable for human habitation. Water is a dear commodity brought by trucks. A Wall is being build-up on the border. Sergiy, a former soldier, is having trouble adapting to his new reality. He meets Katya while on the Black Tulip mission dedicated to exhuming the past. Together, they try to return to some sort of normal life in which they are also allowed to fall in love again.

Ukraine’s official selection for the 2021 Academy Awards, Valentyn Vasyanovych’s haunting and suddenly-prescient sci-fi feature Atlantis envisions a Russian invasion of his country, and its aftermath. 


“Ukraine’s official Oscar entry, the movie depicts an all-too-convincing dystopia... Vasyanovych’s style is informed by both Kubrick and early Jim Jarmusch.” Glenn Kenny. A New York Times Critic's Pick.
