 The Lost Petition (1972) directed by Borys Ivchenko

Location: 
Zoom

The Ukrainian Film Club of Columbia University

will open its season of the academic year 2020-21

(seventeenth since its foundation)

with the online screening and discussion of

 The Lost Petition (1972) directed by Borys Ivchenko.

Inspired by the Mykola Hohol (a.k.a. Nikolai Gogol) short story, this heroic comedy takes place in 18th century Ukraine. Two Cossacks, Vasyl and Andrii, set out on a surreal journey to St. Petersburg, Russia. Charged by the Hetman of Ukraine to deliver a letter to the tsarina, they go through thick and thin in order to accomplish their dangerous mission and safely return home. On the way, they demonstrate miracles of resourcefulness, overcome countless challenges, and cheat the devil himself. The iconic actor Ivan Mykolaichuk plays the lead role. Shot when the Soviet regime launched a new campaign of repressions against Ukrainian dissidents, better known as the sixtiers, the film resorts to Aesopian language to push the limits of national self-expression imposed by the colonial regime in the final stages of its existence.

 

The film will be introduced and its discussion will be led by Professor Yuri Shevchuk

Wednesday, September 23, 2020, 7:00 PM
