The movies range from an edgy crime thriller and a sober historic drama to a provocative documentary suggesting the Chernobyl disaster was no accident. It all goes to show Ukrainian film is emerging as a formidable entity in the realm of world cinema, says John Paskievich, a Winnipeg filmmaker and one of the organizers of the festival. “ After independence, ( the film industry) was in chaos and there is still chaos now,” he says. “ But I feel there’s a new open spirit in the films, open to the rest of the world. “ Now especially, things are picking up,” he says. The KinoFilm Fest launched last year with “ private sponsor money and no government grants,” Paskievich says. “ It did well, as a first effort. It was a little difficult at times, but it was fun.” The films on view in its sophomore year are bold and challenging works, befitting a country where political strife may yield a sense of creative urgency. Paskievich says they are films that deserve to be seen, not just by Ukrainians but anyone interested in contemporary film. “ It would be nice to get more of the outside community out,” he says. “ These films are not ethnic; they’re films seen through particular eyes in a particular place in the world.” The films include: The Russian Woodpecker ( Thursday, May 21, at 7 p. m.): This doc, a Grand Jury prize winner at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, follows an artist named Fedor Alexandrovich as he launches his own investigation into the dark doings behind the Chernobyl disaster simultaneous to the recent uprising by Ukraine against Russian occupation. The Guide ( Friday, May 22, at 7: 30 p. m.): This historic drama — Ukraine’s submission to the foreign language film Oscar in 2014 — follows an American engineer who arrives with his son in the 1930s to help build socialism, only to bear witness to Stalin’s campaign of starvation launched against Ukrainian peasants. The film’s director, Oles Sanin, will be in attendance for a Q& A following the screening. Ivan the Powerful ( Saturday, May 23, at 7 p. m.): This historic drama looks at the life of a 1920s circus performer, deemed the world’s strongest man, as he toured the world demonstrating his amazing strength. The Tribe ( Saturday, May 23, at 9 p. m.): A decrepit state- run Kyiv school for the deaf is a veritable crime academy where a new student rises through the ranks to become a pimp, a position put in jeopardy when he falls in love with one of the school’s escorts. A Grand Prix winner at Cannes, this virtually wordless drama was directed by Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy.
