Spitfire Company: END OF MAN?! NEWS REPORT FROM THE KITCHEN

What happens when instead of the everyday portion of truth delivered in the name of power, we find the testimonies of nameless and stricken people, as recorded by the Nobel prize winner Svetlana Alexijevicova? Her books are apolitically political. With unfaltering certainty, they are a reflection of modern society. Through hundreds of interviews with contemporary witnesses, they offer an alternative view on modern history as seen by the common people.

A multigenre project about the power of the powerless influenced by the books of Světlana Alexejovič, who won the Novel Prize for literature.
