An intimate look at the war in Ukraine, as seen through the eyes of artists who remained to make art as a defiant act in the face of aggression.
For many Ukrainians, their first act of defiance was not to leave. This documentary follows artists on the ground during the Russian invasion who are continuing their work even as the world crumbles around them. Urgent, visceral and poetic, Rule of Two Walls does not avert its eyes from the horrible realities of life during wartime, but it finds inspiration in how artists are channeling those experiences into works of resistance, hope and, even, beauty.
Programmed in conjunction with the Hood Museum's "Recording War" exhibition. Introduction by curator Elizabeth Mattison.
