Please join us for a screening of Bad Roads (2020) by Natalya Vorozhbit, the final screening of the Fall 2022 Harriman Film Series Warning Signs, which explores the female optics on the threshold of the present-day war in Ukraine. Bad Roads brings together four stories set in the conflict zone of Ukraine before the recent full-scale military invasion. Resisting coherent narrative structure, the movie follows fraught everyday encounters which sometimes turn into scenes of violence. In 2021, Bad Roads was selected as Ukraine’s submission for the Academy Awards Best International Feature Film. Screening organized with participation of Serhii Tereshchenko, Graduate Student in the Department of Slavic Languages. Moderated by Mark Lipovetsky and Tanya Efremova.
