Fashion Film: Vytachiv

by Vova Klever on 11 August 2021

Vova Klever's Vytachiv is equally mysterious as it is disturbing, perplexing as it is eerie. Following its protagonist around the small village of Vytachiv, Ukraine, the greyscale fashion film, although ambiguous in its theme, explores the concept of melancholy through an Eastern European lens. Its eerie-ness is felt through both the haunting music that features from beginning to end and the film's protagonist, a ghostly figure dressed in all black, visually mirroring Ingmar Bergman's character, Death, in The Seventh Seal, 1957.
