A rave and Kyiv: between exaltation and alienation, the artists’ gaze moves as they observe the crowd, recounting the intimate experience of each participant.

Cxema is the biggest techno-rave in Ukraine, organised in the Dovzhenko Film Studios in Kyiv. The camera focuses on the young participants dancing to the pounding rhythm of Stanislav Tolkachev’s music.

For the youth of Kyiv, this collective ritual of modern alienation is an opportunity for absolute freedom to escape from everyday difficulties. However, the romantic dimension is overturned by returning to the city where the young protagonists, dazed and disoriented, do not seem ready to face their external reality.
