Under the open sky (2023) is a documentary by Pavel Buryak, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE CORTO” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

When the world stops, you have only one chance to survive – continue to do what you love. In the beginning of the war, staying in a temporary factory-shelter, Masha and Ivan are making the drawings and paintings, gathered under ‘the one open sky’: the sky which is not covered from the missiles. The image of war that they only knew about, came to live in front of them on the canvas.



“Observation. Collective experience. War has permeated whole life, we see it every morning on the tablecloth, inside the shoes, in the way people live, talk, sleep, in a child who is playing with a cat – beyond the peaceful reality threshold, war entered our house. The image that we only knew about, came to live in front of the nation. This is what the works of artists show us. This is what they feel. And I’ve got a unique chance to show what the real art means.”
