An engaging love letter to Ukraine and its people, Enter Through the Balcony examines how architecture can be a curious pathway to a deeper understanding of culture and place.
Enter Through The Balcony deals with eclectic balconies as a strange architectural phenomenon. The lack of government regulation allows Ukrainians to build any kind of balcony regardless of the style of the building, to the point that people sometimes rebuild them to be bigger than the apartment itself. The film explores the balcony as an informal architectural form that is uniquely Ukrainian. It is a journey through the decades, examining both balconies and their owners in cities across Ukraine. Through these stories, the film uncovers Ukraine’s post-Soviet history — people’s lives, the culture, and the relationship between personal and public space in cities.
