Flora VSR-98
"Flora VSR-98" is the name of common camouflage, which the girls from the Russian cadet police school wear. Russian police system is very masculine. While camouflage is mostly men's attribute and associated with force and brutality, the name "Flora" refers to blooming and femininity.
While being only 14-15 years old, girls embark on a path of brutal patriarchy of the military regime.
Trying to combine femininity, youth, and the harsh reality of service, they are doomed to be new faceless cogs in a war machine.
I'm interested in the interaction between the system ruled by men and the evolving girls' world. The way how they express themselves, looking for their sexuality, tiny details popping out through the official uniform. The system changes them, but they also shift its boundaries.

Distance: 8 hours

In the age of email, chats, photos and video calls, high-speed trains and airplanes long
distance relationships take a new form.
Distance here is only a physical quantity. A quantity which could easily be reduced to
nothing in a measly eight hours. And relations are not limited to love or intimacy.
