Film screening

Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the premiere screening of a collective film War in Kyiv, created during Kyiv Biennial 2015 within the framework of The School of Image and Evidence.

War in Kyiv is an experimental film shot during Artur Żmijewski’s workshop that took place at The School of Kyiv biennial in September 2015. The workshop was held in the form of a ‚conversation‘ between the participants that proceeded through short video statements. Every video created within the workshop was either an individual sentence, or a respond to other participant’s sentence. War in Kyiv is a collection of such statements, combined into a collective talk.

Co-authors of War in Kyiv: Vitaliy Atanasov, Angelina Kariakina, Ksenia Marchenko, Diana Poladova, Oleksiy Radynski, Ivanna Yakovyna, Artur Żmijewski.

A discussion moderated by Kateryna Sergatskova with participation of film co-authors will take place after the screening.
