Like his photos, Bratkov's films are always sharp and almost painfully realistic. In the dramatically titled video Life is Pain, Bratkov filmed a Ukrainian prostitute who occasionally makes some extra cash as a chanteuse in a nightclub; her gut-wrenching repertory, bizarre make-up trompe-l’oeuil skin-colored shirt unite to exclaim the basic truth of her act – that life is pain indeed.
