Camerimage International Film Festival 2015 - Nominated for 'Best Music Video' and 'Best Cinematography'
Australian Directors Guild Award for Best Direction in a Music Video 2015
A man returns to a place he once called home. Nature and decay have taken over but the memories are still strong. He brings life back to Pripyat, Chernobyl - hoping to capture how it was and how it could have been.
Filmed in late Februrary 2014, having arrived in Kiev just days after the violence stopped in Maidan, the experience of witnessing the events in Independence Square shaped our approach.
