Kachalka, Kiev’s enormous open-air gym is a community constructed facility that is free-to-use. Made entirely from recycled scrap materials repurposed from the country’s Soviet past it is widely considered to be ‘the most hardcore gym in the world’. The film seeks to draw light on the greater importance of this facility for its regular users.
