Ukrainian Language Students Discover Ukrainian New York

On Sunday,  March 4, 2018, students of the Ukrainian language program at Columbia University had their traditional Ukrainian Language and Culture Day out. The program included a visit to the Ukrainian Museum and viewing of the current Ukrainian costume exhibition there. This was followed by watching of the new feature documentary “Breaking Point. The War for Democracy in Ukraine," directed by Mark Jonathan Harris (USA) and Oles Sanin (Ukraine) that had just been theatrically released in the USA http://www.breakingpointfilm.com
 
The crowning item of the program was a dinner at the East Village Ukrainian Restaurant, located in the Ukrainian National Home on Second Ave and 9th Street. To combine a great deal of pleasure with some business, all this was a field trip for the students to write a review of the film and prepare for an in-class discussion on their discovery of Ukrainian NYC.
