Has-Beens 2015 / Olena Moskalchuk and Dmytro Burko / 11 mins

The famous Petrivka book market in Kyiv is a treasure trove of baggy novels and onion-skin verse. This new documentary takes us on a tour of its aisles and alleyways, paying homage to the market and its merchants.

Hollywood on the Dnipro: Dreams from Atlantis 2014 / Oleh Chornyi (dir); Stanislav Tsalyk (screenwriter) / 89 mins

Viewers of Ukrainian film may not realise it, but they are all in some way residents of Buchak, a small bucolic village along the river Dnipro made famous in films by Oleksandr Dovzhenko, Sergei Paradzhanov, Andrei Tarkovskii, and Iuliia Solntseva. Hollywood on the Dnipro takes us on journey through the history of Ukrainian and Soviet cinema by exploring the village and its cultural legacy.

The screening will be followed by a special Q&A with historian Stanislav Tsalyk, who wrote the film’s screenplay.

Wine reception to follow the screenings.
