Ukraine Fundraiser Screening ‘Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors’ at Pálás Cinema

Drinks reception followed by a fundraising screening of the iconic Ukrainian film.

Ukrainian film “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” won almost every, award in sight on the 1964 film festival circuit. It is a boldly conceived and astonishingly photographed blend of enchanting mythology, hypnotic religious iconography and pagan magic. Deep in the Carpathian mountains of 19th century Ukraine, love, hate, life and death among the Hutsul people are as they’ve been since time began.

Born in 1924 to Armenian parents in Tbilisi, Serhiy Parajanov became one of the 20th century’s greatest filmmakers. He studied at the film school in Moscow, but left Russia to work in Ukraine during the 1950s. He had many confrontations with the Soviet authorities for both his politics and sexuality, eventually serving time in prison.

Ukrainian Culture Nights is a curated series of events supported by the Creative Europe Desk Ireland in collaboration with Ukrainian-Irish Cultural Platform.

All the proceeds from the Ukrainian Culture Nights events will go to the following charities in Ukraine; Humanitarian aid, Aid for Children, and Support Ukrainian filmmakers
