on social media

A short 23-minute
film about life in the Chornobyl exclusion zone “Nuclear
Waste,” by Ukrainian director Myroslav Slaboshpytskyi, is among
those to be presented at Locarno’s Piazza Grande, the world’s
biggest outdoor cinema.
The last time a Ukrainian film was shown as
a part of the Locarno competition program was in August 2011,
although the movie was only partially Ukrainian, made in cooperation
with Russian and German filmmakers.

“Unfortunately
Ukraine is a rare guest at such festivals,” says Slaboshpytskyi.
“This film festival in Locarno is one of the world’s most
prestigious ones
after Berlin’s, Cannes and Venice’s
festivals.”

Slaboshpytskyi’s movie will be shown as a part
of Concorso Internationale shorts competition.
