Composed of clips taken from 1970s Ukrainian documentaries and Communist propaganda film Unfortunately It Was Paradise creates a hypnotic experience. Focusing on formal and textural qualities in the images, the film transforms daily rituals and gestures into intimate architectures. A space for contemplation and being merging the past and the present.
