Event Details:

In the mid-20th century, the Ukrainian cultural elite faced the dilemma choice, whether to immigrate, and thus to preserve national identity. Or to remain in the Soviet Union and to assimilate. The film is in tribute of the New York Group – an informal association of Ukrainian poets immigrated to New York in the 1950’s. The film is a rich mixture of poetry, photo & video chronicles, New York landscapes (videotaped by special ‘Fraze-Frazenko’ style) as well as funny and tragic stories, portraits of poets that have changed Ukrainian literature.

Appearing in the film are: Bohdan Boychuk, Bohdan Rubchak, Jurij Tarnawsky, Zhenya Vasylkivska, Emma Andijewska, Oleh Kowerko, Yuri Kolomeyets, Maria Rewakowicz; as well as George Grabowicz, Titus Hewryk, Yuri Andrukhovych, Viktor Neborak, Vasyl Makhno, Andriy Drozda, and others.
