Flight of a BulletDocumentaries
Across a single unbroken take, Flight of a Bullet captures the ethical minefield of documentary filmmaking within the quickly changing contexts of a conflict zone.
Director Beata Bubenec took 400 hours of footage during two weeks embedded with the Ukrainian volunteer military group Aidar Battalion in the hotly contested Donbass region. Suspecting that a Ukranian man who questions the director’s right to be filming is a separatist, the group — against Bubenec’s wishes — capture and interrogate him. From the fast-paced capture and tense interrogation to the mundane aspects of battalion life, this documentary provides a unique insight into the role of the eyewitness.
