Recently, two independent artists, Sashko Brama and Andriy Buchko, started walking expedition through Ukraine: from Chop to the first post office in the east.The purpose of the trip is to study the cultural values and life of Ukrainian people and to create a documentary multimedia presentation. Guys are already on the road and they need your support. You can track the progress of the project here. Sashko Brama comments:
Hiking allows you to contemplate and plunge into the surrounding reality, to feel scale and continuity, to live each step.We put ourselves in extreme conditions in order to reduce the distance between ourselves and others - strangers with whom we have a common country, whom we want to get to know. Every day on this road is a jump in the unknown. To sleep each night at a new unknown place, whenever the night founds us - in the woods, in the field, in the church or with random people who share our dinner and tell their truth.
The guys capture the pictures, audio, and video of the cultural landscapes, situational models, occasional confessions, landscapes. On the basis of these materials will be created music and multimedia performance. Enter UA is an interdisciplinary project that is implemented in collaboration with scientists.
You can support the project financially here or in another way (technically, by time, work, kind words, attention).
