English subtitled documentary about the life in the town of Huliaipole and its residents, ruined by Russian invasion. Locals talk about their lives and their attitude to Nestor Makhno, and their respect for him despite his opposition to statehood (including Ukrainian one). The reporter visits some places associated with Makhno, like a memorial museum and his home.
From the description: Gulyaipole is known for its native - the most odious anarchist in world history, who is rightfully considered Nestor Makhno. For more than a year, the town has been on the conflict line and does not allow the Russian occupiers to advance further into the territory of Ukraine. As a century ago, Zaporizhzhia is once again shedding blood for the right to self-determination. However, the current war has a fundamental difference - it is the attitude of the descendants of the Makhna case towards Ukrainian statehood and the understanding of who is the real enemy for them. How do Gulyaipole and nearby villages live on the front line for more than a year? How do the descendants of Makhna manage to combine the spirit of freedom and anarchy with patriotism? What do local residents hope for and what are they waiting for? How do they respond to the events of today and centuries ago? Khashchi visited the homeland of Nestor Ivanovich Makhno and tried to understand these issues.
