The Ukrainian Society at Humboldt University is about to start a series of contemporary Ukrainian documentaries. The concept is simple: Carefully selected documentaries, free entry, and the possibility to donate on the spot for the Ukrainian cause. At the kick-off screening, the award-winning documentary "Life to the Limit" by director Pavlo Peleshok will be presented, followed by an essayistic portrait of an representative of Ukrainian Modernism, "Infinity: According to Florian" by Oleksiy Radynski, and the highly acclaimed documentary "20 Days in Mariupol" by Mstyslav Chernov.

 

At the beginning of the winter, the Ukrainian Society — a students' initiative at HU Berlin that formed shortly after th Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, 2022 — published a first post on their Instagram page: "As we enter this winter, the predominant feeling is concern. Concern about the continuing russian terror. Concern about the looming strikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. Concern about waning support in the West. Yet what we wish for remains unchanged: a free and independent Ukraine."

The Ukrainian Society invites everyone interested to join the screenings — "to come together, reflect, and celebrate the strength of the human spirit through the lens of these impactful documentaries!"

The collective has now announced the film selection for their series of Ukrainian documentary cinema at the Humboldt University:

Ukrai­nian Docu­men­tary Cinema — A New Film Series at HU Berlin

The Ukrai­nian Society at Hum­boldt Uni­ver­sity is about to start a series of con­tem­po­rary Ukrai­nian docu­men­ta­ries. The con­cept is simple: Carefully sel­ected docu­men­ta­ries, free entry, and the pos­si­bi­lity to donate on the spot for the Ukrai­nian cause. At the kick-off scree­ning, the award-win­ning docu­men­tary “Life to the Limit” by director Pavlo Pele­shok will be pre­sented, fol­lowed by an essay­i­stic por­trait of an repre­sen­ta­tive of Ukrai­nian Moder­nism, “Infi­nity: Accor­ding to Flo­rian” by Oleksiy Radynski, and the highly acclaimed docu­men­tary “20 Days in Mariupol” by Mstyslav Chernov.

 

At the begin­ning of the winter, the Ukrai­nian Society — a stu­dents’ initia­tive at HU Berlin that formed shortly after th Rus­sian full-scale inva­sion of Ukraine on February 24th, 2022 — published a first post on their Insta­gram page: “As we enter this winter, the pre­do­mi­nant fee­ling is con­cern. Con­cern about the con­ti­nuing rus­sian terror. Con­cern about the loo­ming strikes on Ukrai­nian energy infra­struc­ture. Con­cern about waning sup­port in the West. Yet what we wish for remains unch­anged: a free and inde­pen­dent Ukraine.”

The Ukrai­nian Society invites ever­yone inte­rested to join the scree­nings — “to come tog­e­ther, reflect, and cele­brate the strength of the human spirit through the lens of these impactful documentaries!”

The coll­ec­tive has now announced the film sel­ec­tion for their series of Ukrai­nian docu­men­tary cinema at the Hum­boldt University:
