Ukraine: Revolution, Love, and Mayhem

Dynamic cinema is being generated in the Ukraine as a result of the country’s seismic cultural, political, and economic upheavals. Four current films illustrate varying sectors of Ukrainian life—from the politically charged protests of the 2014 revolution, the depths of the mines in the northwest, and the comedic tale of a cross-cultural romance. Though each filmmaker has a unique method of storytelling, they seamlessly and pointedly explore ways that immigration, love, and revolution affect the people of Ukraine and its neighboring regions. Regardless of the danger conveyed, the camera does not break away from its subjects in these riveting new works.
