The Frida Cinema

Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

Atlantis

Ends February 18th

A prize-winner at the Venice Film Festival and Ukraine’s official selection for the 2021 Academy Awards, Atlantis is a gorgeous and visionary sci-fi drama. Eastern Ukraine, 2025. A desert unsuitable for human habitation. Water is a dear commodity brought by trucks. A Wall is being build-up on the border. Sergiy, a former soldier, is having trouble adapting to his new reality. He meets Katya while on the Black Tulip mission dedicated to exhuming the past. Together, they try to return to some sort of normal life in which they are also allowed to fall in love again.

Directed by Valentyn Vasyanovych | 2020 | 108 minutes | Ukraine | English

“An electrifying post-apocalyptic vision…. One of the most jaw-dropping shots of the year… Absolutely deserving of the biggest canvas possible — it’s a world you want to live in.” — Ryan Lattanzio, Indiewire

“Riveting. A fearfully powerful feature. Mr. Vasyanovych’s approach is literally and figuratively visionary.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
