BEST PIECES OF UKRAINIAN POETIC CINEMA TO BE SCREENED IN LVIV
From 19 to 28 August, classical Ukrainian films will be shown in Lviv during Paradzhanov Festival at Levandivka.
In particular, Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Center assisted in arranging screenings of the most significant films of Ukrainian poetic cinema: Ukrainian Rhapsody (1961), Flower on the Stone (1962), Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (1965) and The Color of Pomegranates (1968) by Serghii Paradzhanov, as well as A Spring for the Thirsty (1965) and The White Bird Marked with Black (1972) by Yurii Illienko.
In addition to film screenings, the festival will feature theatrical and literary events, as well as a number of workshops and meetings with film critics, art historians and people who worked in Paradzhanov’s team or knew the director personally. The festival will take place in the rennovated Suputnyk Cultural Center and the park around it – in a green area, away from the city centre, where Serhii Paradzhanov Street, albeit inappropriately short, has been located since 1993.
Paradzhanov Festival at Levandivka is an interdisciplinary cultural and educational project where, through different artistic practices, the audience will be introduced to the figure and works of the famous Ukrainian film director Serhii Paradzhanov.
