Avitaminosis

Авитаминоз

Directing: Kateryna Ruzhyna

Synopsis

The unfavorable situation of the labor market during the pandemic pushes Kateryna to work in a fraudulent call center that sells vitamins that promise “magical” success to his consumers. While this helped to survive financially, months of isolation, irritated customers and a common frustration took her into a vitamin deficiency, so-called avitaminosis.
The film is a journey into fragility and the search for healing and love in an increasingly suffocating world for young generations.
