From January 29 - February 4, Atlantis will be available to stream via Acropolis Cinema and Grasshopper Film. Acropolis will receive 50% of all revenue.

A prize-winner at the Venice Film Festival and Ukraine’s official selection for the 2021 Academy Awards, Atlantis is a gorgeous and visionary sci-fi drama. Eastern Ukraine, 2025. A  desert unsuitable for human habitation. Water is a dear commodity  brought by trucks. A Wall is being build-up on the border. Sergiy, a  former soldier, is having trouble adapting to his new reality. He meets  Katya while on the Black Tulip mission dedicated to exhuming the past.  Together, they try to return to some sort of normal life in which they  are also allowed to fall in love again.

Dark yet humanly luminous.

- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Dazzling, strange, tragic, comic, touching and eventually optimistic. Masterful.

- Robert Abele, The Los Angeles Times

A strong piece of poetically pure art-house cinema that offers a ray of hope for humanity’s future.

- Dennis Harvey, Variety

Striking...  the film's use of scale to drive home to absurdity of its characters'  actions sometimes calls to mind Werner Herzog’s tragicomic  existentialism, as well as early silent cinema.

- David Robb, Slant Magazine

Atlantis is stunning to watch. Sensitively observed and meticulously crafted. A  remarkable piece of filmmaking from an exciting emerging Eastern  European voice.

- Nikki Baughan, Screen
