Polina Olkhovnikova is a flaneuse ambling through the urban cosmos. She captures the shapes of the city, orders them and seasons them with small poetic interventions: a view through a prism, reduced animations. A meditative stroll set to trip hop beats which gives the restless director time to dream. And which does not aim for beauty, since she’s strolling through the grey industrial, traffic and harbour town of Zaporizhia.
