This reminds me of last summer when I visited my oldest boy Luke in Kiev. It really does look exactly like this! The studenty part of the city in the documentary is, as I remember it, sort of a ways downriver from the central part of the city. But the monasteries are right there in the center of the city. The politics of the film are obscure. There is corruption and there are raves, but that hardly means the ravers are just going to throw out their corrupt government after their party is over. Corruption seemed pretty intractable to me.
