In the middle a sterile white space, filled with a spectacular war soundscape produced in a movie studio, a VR headset shows uneventful video documentation of a frontline position in East-Ukraine. A group of soldiers appear stuck in an endless smoking break.
In March 2017, Dani Ploeger travelled to the so-called ‘ATO zone’ (Anti-Terrorist Operation zone) in East-Ukraine with a press permit to document Ukrainian army and volunteer forces on the frontline. He subsequently went to Paris, where he worked at Cinéphase Studio to generate a war soundscape together with Shelly Bar On.
