(NR) Ukraine – 2 hr 2 min – with subtitles
2021 · d. Kateryna Gornostai
Starring Maria Fedorchenko, Yana Isaienko, Arsenii Markov
In Kyiv, Ukraine, introverted teen Masha attempts to navigate the last year of high school with the help of her fellow non-conformist friends. But Masha is forced out of her comfort zone when she develops feelings for her classmate Sasha. Released only a few months before the invasion of Ukraine, Stop-Zemlia is a perceptive, authentic coming-of-age tale—and a portrait of a world upended by the ongoing conflict.
