The Ukrainian Film Club at Columbia University continues its series, New Genres of Contemporary Ukrainian Cinema. Developing the topic of its most recent event, the Club will screen extended episodes from a number of rarely seen feature narrative films that exemplify the new genre of Ukrainian youth movies, made by the young generation of Ukrainian filmmakers. They address the problems that preoccupy today’s young Ukrainians, with a primary focus on what it means to be Ukrainian. Footage of these movies will serve as a point of departure to discuss how young Ukrainians see themselves in the 2020s. The program will include the works of such filmmakers as Sasha Lidahovsky, Mykhailo Dziuba, Antin Velboi, Irma Vitovska, Antonio Lukich and others. Yuri Shevchuk will introduce the program and mediate the post-screening discussion.
