Black Level
Directed by: 
Black Level (Valentin Vasjanovich)

Kostya is a photographer undergoing a midlife crisis: his girlfriend is leaving him and his father has been left paralysed following a stroke. This wordless film is both an examination of how to tell a story through animated images and a funny and disturbing story about modern loneliness. Black Level won the FIPRESCI prize at the Odessa International Film Festival in 2017.
