War Note consists of personal videos from the phones, camcorders, cameras and GoPros of Ukrainian soldiers and incorporates these into this surreal journey to the frontline of the war with Russia. The film shows a bizarre world whose laws are very different from those we know. Everything is different than in peace time, the behaviour, relationships and the humour. The soldiers wake up and fall asleep, rejoice and cry, there's this constant feeling that the recording may end at any moment.
