Film Screening & Discussion. The Leading Role (U.S. Premier)

Wednesday, January 30, 2019
7:00pm
Deutsches Haus (420 West 116th St at Amsterdam Ave)

Please join the Ukrainian Film Club at Columbia University for the New York premier of The Leading Role (2016) directed by Serhiy Bukovsky. Professor Yuri Shevchuk will introduce the film and mediate the discussion.

Russian language with English subtitles.

In his latest feature documentary, Serhiy Bukovsky, paragon of Ukrainian documentary filmmaking, pays tribute to his mother and actress Nina Antonova. A natural master of her métier, Ms. Antonova, who is in her early 80s, shows no signs of slowing down. She continues to make films and is brilliant on and off screen. With her there is no telling where acting ends and reality begins. This is an absolute must-see.
