Nikita Zigura's Bread wars
"The project mentally transports viewers to the places of active hostilities in the east and south of Ukraine. Where enemy fighters fly over Ukrainian fields with black shadows, bringing death and destruction, burning wheat fields while farmers try to save at least something from the fire...
And then you return to the moment of 'here and now', and all around you is a peaceful life, where bread is not harvested on mined fields or under missiles." - Nikita Zigura
