Flowers of Ucraine

Representante do Projeto: Adelina Borets

País: Ukraine & Poland

Tagline: Three generation of Ukrainians (Xers, millennials and zoomers) faces its own problems on a way to better life.


Nine short stories, which characters are divided according to Strauss– Howe generational theory. They are all ordinary people: pupil, graduate, student, designer, driver, smuggler, artist, civil servant and emigrant. Their problems are real and contrast with each other, but relate to one of the three prototypes of the generation. Everyone takes a decision. Some of them are more influenced by generation stereotypes, some of them less.

Need for peace, money and self-acceptance are common for all of the characters. But some habits and tastes are mutual only for Xers, millennials or zoomers. The story is not given in a classic sequential historical timing, but is composed like a patchwork quilt, intertwining one character with another. Starting the story in Kyiv, we move away from the capital and end up outside the country to show or disprove the global nature of the theory of generations.
