Ukrainian Film Club Discussion: The Living
Please join the Ukrainian Film Club of Columbia University and the Harriman Institute for an online screening and discussion of the documentary film The Living (2008) in commemoration of the 87th anniversary of the Holodomor Famine-Genocide in Ukraine in 1932-1933. Professor Yuri Shevchuk will moderate a conversation with director Serhii Bukovsky and producer Victoria Bondar who will discuss how their film was made, its reception around the world, and more.

The event on November 18 will be a discussion only. Attendees can view the film prior to the event at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lDp9AMACys

The Living intertwines two narratives: eyewitness testimonies by the survivors of the Great Famine, and the dramatic story of the Welsh journalist Gareth Vaughan Jones, one of the few Westerners who travelled to the Soviet Union and wrote about the genocide of Ukrainian peasants. The film celebrates the invincibility of the human spirit faced with the Soviet machine of mass murder. The US premiere of The Living took place on November 21, 2008 at Columbia University as the focal part of the international conference "The Holodomor in Film," jointly organized by the Ukrainian Studies Program and the Harriman Institute. The Living was shown at numerous film festivals around the world.

This event will also be streamed live on YouTube: https://youtu.be/CXGEYiFT5Eg
