EXTINÇÃO/EXTINCTION (2018)


    The end of the cold war did not produce a thaw throughout the continent. A peculiarity of today's Europe is the variety of 'frozen conflicts' it contains.
    Transnistria is an unrecognised state that broke away from the former Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union in 1990.
    The film is a casual juxtaposition of the elevated with the banal, with an eerily convincing logic of paradox.
