Back Home. When Crimea is "Ours"

Some stay, many leave. Feelings are mixed, in certain quarters euphoria reigns, elsewhere a sence of regret remains. Life has changed, since Russia annexed Crimea, but how exactly? Simferopol-born Inna Denisova on a personal return to her native city in search of answers.

“Back Home” proclaim the posters and graffiti: a journalist takes up the gauntlet and returns home to fair-ground attractions and a sea of white, blue and red flags (“Crimea is Ours!”), obediently jubilant tourists and wary locals, the trail against filmmaker Oleg Sentsov and a militarized anti-Maidan performance. First-hand testimony of a deeply divided society.
