From December 14 to 18, 2010, in the Ukrainian Film Club in Berlin, the Days of Ukrainian Cinema will be held.
From December 14 to 18, 2010, in the Ukrainian Film Club in Berlin, the Days of Ukrainian Cinema will be held. As part of the festival, movies related to the history of Ukrainian cinema and contemporary Ukrainian cinema will be shown. A number of films that demonstrate Ukrainian-German cinema relations in the early twentieth century and several films of Ukrainian production from 2000s will also be shown. The program will include the classic silent film "The Earth" (1930, version 1971) by Oleksandr Dovzhenko. In Ewald André Dupont’s "Salto Mortale" (1931), viewers can become acquainted with the work of Kyiv’s film actress Anna Sten, who had an outstanding career in the Soviet cinema and who later became a European star from her work in Berlin in the late 20s and early 30s. By showing such films, the organizers hope to introduce the Berlin public to the little-known pages of German-Ukrainian relations in the field of cinema. Two films represent modern Ukrainian filmmaking. Sergiy Masloboischykov’s "The Sound of the Wind" (2002) describes the search and reflection of the Ukrainian intelligentsia for their place in an era of social change. In the prominent Ukrainian magazine "Cinema-Theatre" this movie was called a “film based on very subjective feelings of the director that are close to poetry." Historical cinema will be represented by the first in Ukraine film about Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytskyj. In his film, director Oles Yanchuk raises particular questions of moral choice in complex historical conditions, issues that are relevant today in Ukraine. All screenings will be in the original language with English subtitles and will be introduced by cinema critics. The program of the festival can be found at this website: The cinema days are held with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the Embassy of Ukraine in Germany.
