Thirteen short stories unfold a panorama of life in the occupied territories, from tragedy to comic farce. The “green men” are unable to recall the name of their “native town, here nearby”. A German journalist at a checkpoint is greeted with a shout, “we’ve caught a fascist!”. They celebrate weddings and set public punishments, they expropriate cars and money for the benefit of the “republics”, they live in basements to escape from shell bombings. Sergei Loznitsa’s film raises the question of where in this kaleidoscope lies the border between truth and fiction.
