The Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute invites you to the international conference: "Visualizing the Holodomor:
the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide of 1932-1933 on Film."

Held in a string of other academic forums around the USA and Canada to mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Great Famine in Ukraine, the Columbia conference will offer a novel approach to raising awareness worldwide of this largely unknown human calamity; it will focus on film, and filmmaking as a means to understand the consequences of this tragedy for Ukraine and the world. Meant to appeal to a wide audience, the conference will bring together academics and filmmakers and investigate analytical and theoretic, as well as empirical, perspectives on the Holodomor.
