This charming style of filmmaking, stop motion, maybe unsure of what the technical term is, adds an enchantment, a magic to a place that borders on animation. Maybe that’s too much levity, considering the horrors of what’s descended upon Ukraine. But this film, from Joerg Daiber, captured last summer, shows the absolute beauty of a place that was, until recently, an adventurer’s dream. With courage and strength, it will be again.
