The Ukrainian Film Club at Columbia University will launch its first event of the 2006-2007 academic year with a new installment of its series “Ukraine. A Cinematographic View from the West,” which will include: 1) the chance to meet New York-based director Andrij Parekh and writer/co-director Sophie Barthes, who will present two of their short narrative films, “Snowblink” (Zymove vesillia) (2004), and “The Dead Roosters” (Mertvi pivni) (2002); as well as 2) a screening of "Dai Bojé" (Dai Bozhe) (1994), a documentary by Jean Bojko and Guy Chanel about France-born Bojko’s journey to discover his roots in a remote Ukrainian village. All films will be shown free of charge in their original English, Russian and French versions with English subtitles. Yuri Shevchuk, director of the film club, will give an update of the summer’s Ukrainian film developments before the screening.
