Historical Moments and Movements in Ukrainian Art and Film: From Medieval to Contemporary Webinar

Event description: 

This two-part public forum explores the historical development of Ukraine’s identity manifested in art and fim. Russia’s invasion in Ukraine on February 22, 2022 has upended the international law, challenged the rights of existence of a sovereign state, and brought a humanitarian crisis. Our goal in this public forum is to offer the documentary film-maker Sergei Loznitsa and scholars of Ukrainian art to present their work and voice their position against Russia’s war.
