Far-Flung Event

Far-Flung Event

Thursday, September 3, 2020 - 4:00pm
Location: 
Zoom

Notwithstanding the unusual character of this summer, the Slavic Department is happy to invite you to a traditional event “Reports from Far-Flung Correspondents,” which will be held on the traditional day and time –  Thursday of the last week before classes, i.e. on September 3, from 4 to 5:30 pm.

In sync with everything, this event will be “online only” – please save the Zoom link for it:

Naturally, this summer, our students didn’t travel as much as usual, which is why we decided to dedicate this year’s “Reports” to predominantly intellectual journeys and experiences. Students will report classes taught and taken, books or films that deeply impressed, and any memorable experiences that affected them intellectually and professionally.

New Graduate Students Welcome Party

New Graduate Students Welcome Party

Friday, September 4, 2020 - 4:00pm
Location: 
Zoom
Dear all,
 
Following Mark Lipovetsky's invitation to the 'Far-Flung Correspondents Zoom,' I, on behalf of myself, Elaine and Scout (your curriculum committee), would like to invite all of our graduate students to a virtual welcome party on Friday, September 4th from 4 pm to 6 pm.
 
Although we will not be able to gather in person this year, I think this informal ~zoom party~ will nevertheless be an excellent way for new and returning students to become acquainted! Returning students, please start thinking of any tips you wish you had when you started the program and new students, jot down any questions you might have.
 
One of the things that I hope that we can talk about is how to maintain a strong grad student community during this time. The curriculum committee has been tossing around different possibilities, but we would love to hear any ideas you might have, so start thinking! 
 
The zoom party link will take you to my zoom meeting room, but this isn't my meeting (you will have already heard enough from me at far-flung), so please jump in as much as you want. Although the curriculum committee members are the official hosts of the meeting, it is an opportunity for you all to share thoughts, questions, feelings, anecdotes, etc. etc.

ONLINE FILM PREMIERE & VIRTUAL EVENT. THE MAKAVEJEV CASE OR TRIAL IN A MOVIE THEATER

ONLINE FILM PREMIERE & VIRTUAL EVENT. THE MAKAVEJEV CASE OR TRIAL IN A MOVIE THEATER

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - 4:00pm
Location: 
Zoom webinar & YouTube Live

 

This event will be held virtually as a Zoom webinar and streamed via YouTube Live. There will be no in-person event.

Registrants will receive a link on September 11 to independently view the film prior to the live event.

Please join the Njegoš Endowment for Serbian Language and Culture and the East Central European Center at the Harriman Institute for the virtual US premiere of Goran Radovanović’s feature documentary The Makavejev Case or Trial in a Movie Theater (2019) and an online discussion with the director.

The Makavejev Case or Trial in a Movie Theater (2019) is a story about the public forum following the screening of Dušan Makavejev’s film W. R.: Mysteries of the Organism (1971), the discussion that will lead to the isolation of the director, his creative exile from ex-Yugoslavia, and the blacklisting of one of the most radical and innovative films emerging from Eastern Europe throughout the second part of the twentieth century. It is a story about the era of late socialism when, in spite of some encouraging signs and increased civil liberties in Yugoslavia, it gradually became evident that the system would continue to curb creative expression of artists and filmmakers.

Goran Radovanović (b. 1957 in Belgrade) is a writer and director of both feature and documentary films. He holds an art history degree from the University of Belgrade. Between 1977 and 1980 he sojourned in Munich on a scholarship awarded by the Goethe Institute. He is a member of the European Film Academy, Berlin and Film Artists Association of Serbia. He was a guest professor at EICTV (International Film and Television School), San Antonio de los Banos, Cuba, VGIK; Moscow, Oberlin College, Ohio, USA, ESAP - Escola Superior Artística do Porto, Portugal, DFFB, Berlin, Germany. Retrospectives of his documentary films were held in Barcelona (2006), Mexico City (2007), Havana (2010), and Vienna (2011).

 The Lost Petition (1972) directed by Borys Ivchenko

 The Lost Petition (1972) directed by Borys Ivchenko

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 - 7:00pm
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

Follow the Ukrainian Film Club of Columbia University Facebook page.

The Zoom link to this film club event will be provided 30 minutes before its beginning.
