DPAC screens Ukrainian teen drama ‘Stop-Zemlia’ //
“Stop-Zemlia,” which was screened at DPAC this past weekend, is a tender coming-of-age film following 16-year-olds in Ukraine. The film’s protagonist is Masha, a girl with pale, bleached hair cropped short and a vaguely vacant air about her. Though she seems quiet and out of place compared to the boisterous students in her class, Masha has found a home in two other indie kids — Yana and Senia. The film, like its adolescent subjects, doesn’t know where it wants to end up.
