Documentary Feature | Ukraine | 2023 | Ukrainian/Russian/English | 77 minutes

In this rousing and intimate look at the war in Ukraine, executive produced by Liev Schreiber, the conflict is seen through the eyes of Ukrainian artists who remain in their country to make art as a defiant act in the face of aggression. Using live music performance, painting, street art, and the act of filmmaking itself, David Gutnik's radical documentary aims to illuminate the psychological frontlines of the crisis: how to process, react, and resist while having to go about the rhythms of daily life. Blurring the lines between what is seen in front of and behind the camera, RULE OF TWO WALLS probes what it means to make cinema in a time of war.
