Animals Who Ate Their Humans

Ewa Sułek

Ukraine 2019. Sasha and Misha, soldiers of the Ukrainian army, are waiting for an air raid in a bombed pet shop on the Eastern Front of the hybrid war with Russia. They fight boredom by telling each other stories. Human perspective mixes with that of animals. The well-known world, although under fire, slowly disappears in the fumes of absurdity and the grotesque. Is the anthropocentric perspective the legitimate one? Who has the right to decide the fate of other living creatures? What is man capable of and are there any borders? The main characters are accompanied by a smart-ass radio, two dead dogs and one dead boy.
