How are you?
Room. February 2022. The first day of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine.
A story about controlled and uncontrolled feelings, which, by coincidence, are locked inside a person. It is divided into five acts, like the five most vivid sensations of Ukrainians on the first day of the Russian invasion. Where the one who unites them all sticks out last…
The idea is to show the inside world of every Ukrainian fighting, first of all inside themselves, trying to save their psychological health to be
ready to help each other; about a small unprotected inner Child living in every grown up adult; about hidden love, care and friendship.
To show the story from the view of nerrow lenth, as it is going on very near to the viewer.
The shooting should be done in the black, dark space for making the feeling of the small space around (inside world). The light will differ from one space to another, depending on the mood of the sceen, but still it would be more shadows to show that every character is trying to hide their real feelings.
