Powerful visuals for Manizha by Moscow-based director Lado Kvataniya (previously featured here). Part music video and part art-manifesto, “Mama” follows a small family living in the fable-like setting of a lonely wood. While incorporating supernatural elements, the narrative takes on the very real issue of domestic violence in Russia. As Kvataniya explains:
“We created this project with no support from the government nor any foreign entity. This is only a pure, personal striving to help those in need. The main goal of this awareness campaign is to restart the discussion about the decision on decriminalisation of domestic violence made in 2017.”
