Synopsis

On 25 of February 2022, Antonina Romanova and her partner joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Before the full scale Russian invasion to Ukraine, she lived a life as a director, performer and actress. See her personal journey of resistance to Russian occupation policies.

“My name is Antonina Romanova, and I’m a non-binary person.” We learn about her participation in the Crimean Tatar activities and the Euromaidan protest, her escape from Crimea and involvement in the Ukrainian fight against the Russian invasion. The film author assembles a puzzle from diverse elements, unafraid of experiment, and a personal story becomes a metaphor of Ukrainian strength in the face of the uncompromising enemy.

A moving film that fascinatingly distils the core of Ukrainian cinema. Through a non-binary artist-soldier's perspective, the film deploys the themes of the individual and culture, the artist and their creation, the Ukrainian and their land, the dignity and morality of humans. And of course, fragments! Performance art, warfare, candid footage, protests. The film humbly inserts itself as a flawed fragment of Ukrainian cinema. The screen is split and split again. Culture and war cohabitate onscreen as one struggle. Antonina Romanova says "I". Antonina says "us". Alongside Romani, Jewish, Hutsul, Crimean Tatar, Ukrainian, Romanian, Donbas, Odesan people, this person becomes one among many in a beautiful way. It joins a vibrant chorus of Ukrainian cinema stretching back to the 1920s. It is another portrait of Ukraine's diversity. This collective attitude is something we need to learn from Ukraine.
