No Obvious Signs


No Obvious Signs




CATALOGUE TEXT
A war that destabilises the country and traumatises its people has been simmering in the Ukraine since 2014. Reservists like circa 50-year-old Oksana, who left the army highly decorated after her term of service ended, are struggling with the psychological effects of their experiences. But when the body looks unharmed, psychological trauma often goes unnoticed – by doctors as well as by those affected.

Oksana suffers from anxiety and extreme panic attacks and is among the few Ukrainians who have access to medically supervised treatment of their post traumatic stress disorder. The film follows a strong, thinking woman on her way back to life and demonstrates impressively how indelibly war eats into life.
